Santorini - Mystras
The day has come to say goodbye to Santorini, catching a mid-day flight back to Athens. From there you’ll take car transfer to Mystras, an ancient town on the steep slopes of Taygetus Mountains on the Peloponnese Peninsula. A classic fortified city and archaeological site, you’ll be able to stroll cobbled streets worn smooth by centuries of time, exploring it at your own leisure. You might want to visit the abandoned historic palace where the last Byzantine emperor was crowned. It offers a fascinating glimpse back through time to a remarkably well-preserved medieval Byzantine city. The Archaeological Museum of Mystras is well-worth a visit too, showcasing an impressive collection of Byzantine sculptures, pottery, jewelry, coins and more.
