On this full-day tour, you will be traveling to Sparta. During the trip you will enjoy the beautiful landscape and striking view of Mount Taygetos, protecting Sparta from its enemies naturally with no need of fortification. Little remains from the ancient city of Sparta; the spirit and the bravery of the ancient Spartan warriors, however, are still alive today.
Current Sparta is a modern city built in the valley of Eurotas. In the most central spot of Sparta is the over life-size statue of General Leonidas, reminding us of the 300!
A must for this destination is a visit to the awarded interactive Olive Oil Museum, presenting the product, the process and the evolution of the machinery through time.
Just a breath away you will jump to the medieval times with a visit to the Byzantine town of Mystras, the major cultural center of the time, for decades confusing many to be the ancient city of Sparta. The ruins of the Byzantine town of Mystras radiate mysticism.
