TripAdvisor Reviews Hotel Lida Sparta
Travel Blogs from Sparta
We checked out of our hotel in Nafolio at 9 - just in time to miss the hordes of people from the cruise ship that docked overnight - taxi drivers even slept in their cars to be first in line for the fares. We headed north and west and drove a couple of hours to Sparta/i and Mystras. The militaristic Spartans of the 6th and 5th century BC left no ruins of note - and excavations have only gone down to the Roman era of first century BC.

What I was surprised with, was that although ...
There's really only two big ticket items in the Peloponnese Peninsula of Greece, if early-to-middle antiquity is your thing.
If late Byzantine is your thing, this peninsula is tripping over important sites. But let's be realistic, if you're about to go to Turkey anyways then chances are you're about to have so much 400-1200 AD you'll be ******** Dark Ages.
With that image firmly in mind, I made best speed from the dark and scary port town ...
