What to see In our two or three day visit to these cities you can choose to climb the 999 steps to the impressive Palamidi castle or we’ll just bring you up to the gates. In any case wondering its fortifications which extend to the beaches behind the modern town, to the small streets of the old town full of art & craft shops are a joy. At Monemvasia you will disembark your vehicle at the end of the causeway to enter the city on foot. The only way. Without cars & surrounded by the sea this Medieval city’s many squares, fortifications & richly decorated byzantine churches and cafes are great to experience.
Tips A regular boat shuttle near the sea front makes a great trip to Bourtzi castle, & the Antica Gelateria di Roma with its jolly Italian owner makes the best Ice Cream you will try in Greece, whilst in Monemvasia a swim in one of the local beaches followed by a drink with a sunset view is hard to beat, & a visit to the local winery & its vineyards for a tasting is easily worth the time.
