Our journey will start at your hotel, preferably in the morning and in less than two hours we will have reached our destination, the castle town of Mystras. The route is spectacular, as we will cross the famous and full of myths and traditions mountains of Taygetos. Passing through ravines, stone tunnels, caves and green forests. Our first stop for photos will be in Keadas. Witness the cliff at which Ancient Spartans were bringing and throwing their newborn sick children over, in order to avoid the continuation of the defective genes, that threatened to altered their proud and perfectionist race. During the trip, you will learn everything about the foundation of the castle town of Mystras, by William Villehardouin the second, in the 12th century AD. For his defeat by the Byzantine emperors and stories of the families of Katakouzenos and Paleologus, who brought Mystras at the peak of its glory in the 13th and 14th century AD. You will be informed about the long history of wars that followed, and the alternation of the conquerors. You will wander around Acropolis of William, which dominates the top of the castle town. In narrow streets at which once walked princesses and Byzantine emperors. In museums within the cluttered walls, full of elements of daily life. In monasteries where nuns are still living. In churches where emperors were enthroned. Finally, if you're hungry, remember that you are in Greece. Mediterranean traditional dishes at local restaurants are waiting for you. If not, go back to your hotel to enjoy your afternoon swim in the sea.
Join us and feel like the princess or the knight of your childhood fairy tales.
