Greece: The Peloponnese

by Andrew Bostock
 

Greece is the cradle of civilization, and the Peloponnese is the cradle of Greece: Olympia is here, so are the mountains of Arcadia and Homer's Mycenae. But Bradt’s Greece: The Peloponnese also embraces the living world: the traditional panagyria (village festivals) and the people who still embody the Greek spirit of philoxenia

Overview

Greece is the cradle of civilization, and the Peloponnese is the cradle of Greece: Olympia is here, so are the mountains of Arcadia and Homer's Mycenae. But Bradt’s Greece: The Peloponnese also embraces the living world: the traditional panagyria (village festivals) and the people who still embody the Greek spirit of philoxenia, or hospitality to strangers. It leads travelers to idyllic campsites by ancient theatres; luxurious, boutique hotels; picnic spots in olive groves; buzzing towns and hidden communities. It reveals the best places to eat, hike, kayak or to spot the famous loggerhead turtle. It’s the best guide to the best of Greece.
