What to expect

On this Peloponnese food and wine tour see landscapes and experience real flavors from Greece which are not easy to find in Athens. Your first stop will be the Corinth canal, a manmade canal built in 1890 that connects the central Mediterranean Sea to the Aegen Sea.

You'll visit Ancient Nemea considered to be the best location for wine production in Greece, where everything revolves around wine and olive oil. Stop by one of the best wineries in the area, see their vineyards, taste some of their wines produced in Nemea and Santorini. Here you'll learn a lot about wine and its connection to Greece.

The area is also associated with Hercules' myths. One of the most popular ancient Greek myths was Hercules' first victory in defeating the Nemean lion. You'll find Lake Stymfalia is very close too, where Hercules eliminated the Stymfalia birds.

View the Temple of Zeus before heading off to a family owned olive estate and mill in Parapougki, a small village North of Kalamata. You'll get an active experience starting with the olive groves, a tour of the production process, learn the properties of the high quality extra virgin olive oil and end it with a hands-on tasting session and lunch in a traditional village.

You'll finish the tour in Ancient Messina, one of the most well-preserved cities of the ancient world. Here you will find many hidden gems such as one of the largest well-preserved ancient theater, the Sanctuary of Artemis, the Gymnasium and the Stadium. The Arsinoe fountain and the Klepsydra spring are where, according to the legend, baby Zeus was attacked after his birth.
