3 h. tour (Private tour)
(private transfer to the castle and back + guided walking tour of Monemvasia + free time in the castletown + optional lunch or dinner)
As you disembark your cruise ship to the port of Monemvasia, you will find your private vehicle waiting for you with a sign with your name on it. You will be offered the short but very impressive drive to the castle's gate over the bridge where your tour guide will be waiting for you, and take you to a "journey back in time", walking you into the castle through the only still standing land gate.
From there your walking tour of the main parts of the castletown will begin, as well as a guided tour of the historical metropolis church of Christ in Chains. You can also visit next to the main square of Monemvasia the small but interesting museum there is, where you will see fragments of utensils and pieces of the architecture of the buildings from the middle age during which Monemvasia was at its flourishing period. During this tour you will walk on the steep original steps and cobbled pathways, built in different levels, and explore and take photos of the most important parts of this unique place. For those that would like a less strenuous activity, your tour guide will take you through the main parts of the lower level of the castletown and will then give you suggestions on how to take advantage of your time there.
At the end of your walking and hiking exploration, you shouldn't leave this majestic place, without relaxing at the balconies or the indoor areas of any of the few but impressive cafeterias or restaurants of this town, that offer a spectacular view of the Myrtoon Sea.
Your driver will be meeting you outside the main castle's gate for your short drive back down to the port.
