Wander a Medieval Island Fortress
Monemvasia (meaning "one entry") is a medieval settlement in the Greek Peloponnese that is surrounded by a natural moat: the Mediterranean Sea. A bridge connects to land and parking is easy enough to find. Wander the streets and you'll pass a few dozen old churches and chapels, beautiful and classic Mediterranean roofing, and a string of cafes where you can enjoy affordable and delicious local wines over a game of backgammon at sunset.
