Hey guys, appreciate your input. Wanted to keep out itinerary focused on central Greece and some of the peloponese. We have 15 nights in total:)
Have put together a list of "moments" in both places. And a couple of questions below that if you could comment and advise on, would be much appreciated. We don't mind flying into loannina if it saves time
Q1. Based on the list of moments below, where in peloponese and central Greece would you advise us to be based?
Q2. Also we are not "based" in some places, which would be great stopovers for a night(more road trip style vs base out of a certain place?) any thoughts on this.
Q3. If we could only visit one ruin, which should we head for? Messini, mystras or Delphi?
Q4. If we could only climb one mountain in the vicinity of our plans, which would be a great day trek?
Q5. Where do we watch a play under the stars?
As mentioned in the earlier post, we are mostly nature ppl who love dramatic beautiful scenery to explore, we explore cities mainly for that odd cafe, great food and markets. We are not that much of history buffs so too much to catch up on can be an overload. Thank you very much in advance.
