Advise for 4 days in Peloponnese

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling with 2 friends to Greece in October. We will have a car and have 4 days to explore the Peloponnese before driving to Delphi then back to Athens. I would very much appreciate some help with planning our time there.

We enjoy: scenic drives, time by the sea and historical ancient sites. We like a reasonably busy schedule but not rushed. We do like some time to chill out in a beautiful place for an hour or so most days.

I, of course, want to see everything but realize we can't see it all. Here is a very tentative plan that is likely too ambitious for our time. I would really appreciate some reality checks and some suggestions of where to cut back if needed.

Day 1: Drive from Athens airport (am flight from Santorini) to someplace near the Caves of Diros. What would be reasonable to see on the way- Ancient Corinth, Nemea and/or Mystras? Any suggestions of where to stay near the Caves, preferably by the sea?

Day 2: See the caves in am (open about 10am I think) then drive to Monomevasia and spend most of the afternoon there. Then head to Nafplio. If we do not see Mystras on the way south I was thinking we could maybe stay somewhere nearby and see it on the morning of day 3.

Day 3: See Mystras (if not seen day 1) then drive to Nafplion. Maybe see Ancient Nemea, Mycenae, and Epidarous on the way.

Day 4: Around Nafplio- maybe a 1/2 day boat trip from Nafplio if available. (2 of us really really like to be out on the water)

We will be driving to Delphi the next day.

I am open to any and all suggestions.
If we need to cut something out (likely) what would you skip? FYI- we have traveled to Italy several times so have seen wonderful Byzantine architecture and Roman ruins. We would be more interested in sites that are unique to Greece. (the Caves of Diro look especially interesting)

Any suggestions for routing other than the major highways and interesting smaller villages to stay in?

OR should we just go to Nafplio then add Meteroa from Delphi?

Thanks so much in advance. I really appreciate any input you have.
