Visit Peloponnese Region

The Peloponnese region of Greece is renowned for its vibrant mix of culture and history. It is the southernmost peninsula of Greece, connected to the mainland by the Isthmus of Corinth. The lush beauty of its natural landscape, combined with its many historical ruins, create a unique experience and an ideal destination for tourists.

One popular tourist attraction in the Peloponnese is Nafplio, a picturesque seaside town known for its colorful bougainvillea-covered houses and stunning views from Palamidi Fortress. Another must-see location is Olympia - birthplace of the Olympic Games - where visitors can explore ancient ruins such as temples dedicated to Zeus and Hera.

One interesting historical fact about this area dates back to Ancient Sparta when the city was divided into nine villages called 'obai', each one with their own set of laws and traditions that still echo today in different parts of the region.
