General

We will start our tour with an early morning start from your Hotel, port, airport etc. Driving towards the western coast we will arrive at the Corinthian Canal, a six and a half kilometers canal separating the Aegean Sea with the Ionian sea. We will stop at this amazing sight for a while and then we will continue our tour towards Patra the capital of the Achaean region.

Achaia is a very interesting region of the Peloponnese. Located in the north-western part of the Peloponnese peninsula, derived its name from the Achaeans.  At the past, the city-states of this region formed a confederation known as the Achaean League, which was influential during the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC. Moreover, it was one of the four major tribes of Ancient Greece. Then we will continue our drive to Patra which is one of the most beautiful and historic parts of the Peloponnese. Patra is a place of huge commercial and economic importance. It is the biggest city of Peloponnese and one of the biggest in Greece.

Continuing our drive to Aigio, one of the biggest cities of Achaia, which has a long history that started since the Homeric era. At last we are heading towards Kalavryta which is one of the Peloponnesian areas that had the major impact from Nazi’s occupation. For this route, there is the choice to get the train from Diakopto which is a historic 750 mm (2 ft. 5 1⁄2 in) gauge rack railway in Greece. Located on the northern Peloponnese, it runs 22 km from Diakopto through the Vouraikos Gorge and the old Mega Spilaion Monastery up to Kalavryta
