Greece’s Peloponnese with Niki Vlachou

Enjoy our live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on October 2, 2023.

The Peloponnese Peninsula was the heartland of ancient Greece. Its wild and mountainous landscape has hosted the interminable rise and fall of cultures, which makes for fascinating sightseeing today. Tour guide Niki Vlachou shows us around these historic sights — from ancient Mycenaean domes to the birthplace of the Olympic Games — and offers us a taste of daily life in the strollable port town of Nafplio and the Mani Peninsula's tangle of rustic, olive-dotted villages. Pack a hardy Greek salad, pour a cloudy glass of ouzo, and prepare for an exciting odyssey through this rugged region of Greece.
