    Stop At: Corinth Canal, Isthmia, Corinth 201 00 Greece

    Your private tour will start from Athens and drive you through a scenic and beatiful landscape inside the Peloponnese peninsula.Our first stop is the magnificent structure of the Corinth Canal, which is in Peloponnese, the southern peninsula of Greece. The Corinth Canal conects the Saronic with the Corinthian Gulf in the Aegean Sea.

    A dream of the ancients, that came true in 1893. Time for rest and some amazing photos above the Corinth Canal.


    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Archaeological Museum of Sparta, 71 Agiou Nikonos btwn Dafnou & Evangelistria, Sparta, Sparta Municipality 231 00 Greece

    Then drive towards Sparta, The home of the brave Spartans. Don't be desatisfied with the place, because the Spartans invest on their military NOT in their culture, that's why they became so fearless. They were following the "Agogi" system, training from their 7th year till their 30th age to be SOLDIERS. That was their profession !There are some cultural structures mainly built from the Romans on the 1st century AD, when they captured the city.

    You will visit the archaeological site, where is the Acropolis of Sparta ,olive trees and columns that prove the greatness of the city once. Have some great photos in front of King Leonidas Statue, who fought the Persian army in Thermopylae along with his 300 men. Then , you will visit the archaeological and the oil museum.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Mystras, 6km NW of Sparta, Sparta, Sparta Municipality 23100 Greece

    When you feel hungry get ready to taste the famous Greek cuisine and have a memorable lunch;the tour will guide you to a traditional tavern at the small village of Mystras.It's up to you to choose from a variety of flavors of the most known Greek dishes . Mystras was one of the last Byzantine Outposts and the place that Constantinos Palaiologos, last Byzantine emperor lived.

    Situated on the mount Taygetos, near to ancient Sparta and served the capital of the Byzintine Despotate of Morea in the 14th and 15th centuries.Very serious fortification buildings and churches can be found there from that time.

    There you will visit the palace and the monasteries in Mystras, beginning from the Fortress Gate and ending at the Main Gate.

    After that long visit, it is time to return back to Athens, having in our minds the Glory of Sparta and the Byzantine glamour of Mystras.
