Gythio : Monemvasia Castle Tour

One of the top tourist destinations is the castle town of Monemvasia, just 1.5 hour drive from Gythio. You will be picked up from your hotel in Gythio and transferred through a beautiful scenery to the islet of Monemvasia. There you will meet with your professional licensed guide.

The entrance to the castle town through the main gateway will send you straight into the world of the medieval past. You will explore the romantic alleys and discover Byzantine monuments and buildings with Venetian and Ottoman elements.

The islet used to be a promontory harshly cut off the mainland after a devastating earthquake in 375 A.D. It slowly evolved into a famous castle town and became the strategic base of trade and military fleet of the Byzantine empire. Through the years Venetians and Ottomans among others, conquered the town and have put their stamp on it.

The panoramic views of the Myrtoo sea stretching below the rock are truly impressive and the stories of myths and knights that your guide will share with you, will travel you to other times. In a charming delicatessen of local products you will taste olives and olive oil, local liqueurs and other tastes that will perfectly complement this unforgettable experience.
