The place most of you were most excited to visit again was the Peloponnese region. Although very popular to start with, Mykonos and/or Santorini do not count for us and are not places that most people will revisit.
Lonely Planet named the Peloponnese as the top European destination to visit in 2016. And now, more than ever is the time to visit the Peloponnese and absorb traditional Greek life, history, and amazing landscape.
Travelers to Greece tend to flock to popular islands or marvel at the iconic Acropolis, but one of the country’s most diverse, vibrant regions is often forgotten: the Peloponnese.
There’s nothing not to love about the southern peninsula of the Greek mainland. The Peloponnese with a 1,200-kilometer coastline and incredible natural wealth is an all-year-round destination. You won’t even miss the islands since right next to the Peloponnese you find jewels like Zakynthos and Hydra.
The Peloponnese itself will offer the visitor the mountains, forests, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, and picturesque escapes. And if you think that something is missing, most of Greece’s historic and famous sites are on this beautiful piece of land. Corinth, Epidaurus, Mycenae, Messene, Epikourios Apollon, Sparta, Mystras, Olympia, Methoni, Pylos, Monemvasia, Mani, Nafplio.
Not to forget that the Peloponnese is for … foodies but still you have to avoid the tourist traps.
