Olympic Tour - The Ultimate Peloponnese

Discover Greece on Two Wheels!

Author: Motovoyager

With a size of about half of Switzerland, the Peloponnese is a four fingered peninsular and the southernmost terrestrial region of Greece. The name in Greek means "The Island of king Pelops" who is considered by many to be the founder and creator of the Olympic Games. In this tour we will arrive at Olympia, the holy city that gave birth to the name of "the games".

There we will visit the historic stadium, where a wreath made from wild olive trees was the greatest honour to achieve through competition. Moving forward, we will stay in Monemvasia, also known as the "Gibraltar of Greece." Through bends, curves and hairpins we will ride up to the kingdom of Mystras, the pride of the Byzantine Empire. Diverse landscapes, dramatic scenery and charming towns will then lead us to Sparta; the hometown of the great King Leonidas.
