The Peloponnese is a peninsula that constitutes the southernmost part of mainland Greece. The peninsula features “Arcadian” mountainous landscapes, gorges and lovely beaches and coasts. The Peloponnese is very close to Athens and offers you a variety of archaeological sites to discover.
This is a paradise for lovers of good food and wine. The olive oil of Kalamata and Laconia is considered among the best around the world. But the mythical land of the Peloponnese has also magnificent wines from Nemea (dubbed “the blood of Hercules”), Mantineia, and Messinia. The wine and the oil give birth to multitude of familiar and unfamiliar flavours and recipes: Honey-and-nut snaps, pancakes, fried flat-breads, dipping biscuits made with oil and grape must. All products from this sun-ridden land have one thing in common: their superior taste.
