Scenic landscapes and a high concentration of ancient sites make the Peloponnese one of the most desirable sightseeing destinations in Greece. Separated from the Greek mainland by a narrow gulf, the region contains well-preserved archaeological reminders of the country's eventful history. The Peloponnese also boasts impeccable beaches, local cuisine, and a slew of tiny mountain villages. This region remains relatively uncrowded and lets you discover a quieter and greener corner of Greece, one ruled by traditional hospitality and the simple pleasures of life.
