Surrounded by the teal waters of the Aegean Sea, vast, imposing, Monemvasia is an iceberg-like slab of rock, with sheer cliffs rising hundreds of metres from the sea, linked to the mainland by a single, highly defendable causeway. Monemvasia, the only still inhabited archaeological site in Greece, is a traditional medieval town inside a Venetian castle. Castles, walls, old mansions, narrow cobbled lanes, churches, low arches and vaults, coats of arms, imperial marble thrones, Byzantine icons, all give the impression of a town untouched by time.

If Monemvasia is in your cruise ship's itinerary, here you will find shore excursions to explore not only the magnificent Monemvasia, but also visit nearby places of interest.

Client Testimonials

Niki's knowledge of the history there as well as how she related it to all of us was a perfect balance!
Niki knows her stuff, and she comes across as an intelligent and credible source of verified information. My wife and I used her as our group tour guide in Olympia and then again in Athens, and we were very pleased.
I definitely recommend other cruisers to book independently through Niki Vlachou.
