Rich in history and steeped in mythology, the Peloponnese is a large peninsula in southern Greece, forming the part of the country south of the Gulf of Corinth.
Named for the founder of the Olympic Games, King Pelops, the peninsula reaches out its rocky, beach-fringed fingers into the azure waters of the Aegean Sea and is home to beautiful countryside dominated by olive groves and carob trees. The Peloponnese has long been a favoured weekend and holiday destination for Athenians due to its proximity to Greece’s capital, its mild climate and peaceful scenery.
