The Peloponnese is a place with a very ancient history, enchanting myths and a living tradition, with legendary acropolises, medieval castles and Byzantine ghost towns. It is the birthplace of the priceless Mycenaean civilisation and home of Leonidas’ brave young men. This is where Olympia lies, home of the inextinguishable Olympic flame and the glorious athletic ideal, which had the power to stop wars and unite enemies for the duration of the Games. This is where the statue of Olympian Zeus, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, stood, made by the famous sculptor Phidias. Here still stands the famous ancient theatre of Epidaurus, a witness to the finest productions of today. Within the pages of this book you will experience a magical journey to the past and present of the Peloponnese.
