Three day unguided motorcycle tour that will lead you to the capital of Laconia the world famous Sparta in south eastern Peloponnese and the Castle town of Monemvasia. We will meet and greet you in our head offices were you will get acquainted with your BMW rental motorbike. We will do a short briefing on the tour, the itinerary and then we will take off for our moto tour.


Monemvasia, –the so-called “Gibraltar of the East”–, founded by the Byzantines in the sixth century and is located on the south-eastern coast of the Peloponnese. 


The Castletown is nestled at the edge of a rock and offers an unparalleled opportunity to travel back in the medieval times!
By walking in this picturesque town you become part of its history which was once occupied by the Byzantines, the Venetians, and the Ottoman Turks. 
A visit to the rare octagon-shaped Byzantine church of Agia Sofia on the upper town quarters is a must as it offers breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea. Except the atmosphere and unique landscape, Monemvasia offers unique architecture, enjoyable bars and taverns and the opportunity for taking some truly startling photos. 
Our moto tour will continue further south, towards the Kastania Cave system. An impressive cave complex with spectacular stalactites and stalagmites and the petrified palm forest of Agia Marina. The petrified logs, the rocky terrain and the blue of the sea create a canvas of unparalleled beauty. 
Finally we will visit the town of Sparta famous from its King Leonidas. We will visit the statue of the King where we will take pictures and then move on to the Castletown of Mystras where the last emperor of the Byzantine Empire, Constantine Paleologos, was crowned king. A last stop at the museum of Olive Oil is a must as it offers a unique insight in one of the best products Greece has to offer. 
This motorcycle tour is surely one of the most beautiful, offering splendid motorcycle routes, places of unique beauty and landscapes that have never been seen.

Day 1 Motorcycle tour Greece Monemvasia and Sparta in the land of castles and kings, self guided on a BMW

You will start you day by visiting the Isthmus Canal in Corinth following a scenic coastal route of the Saronic Gulf. A marvel of architecture constructed in the 1800’s allowed the connection of the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island. The canal was dug through the Isthmus at sea level and has no locks. It is 6.4 kilometers in length and only 21.4 meters wide at its base.

Then via the Argolis Gulf you will arrive to Leonidio. A place known for its extreme sports and in particular climbing. The scenery is truly magnificent with the high rocks overlong the beautiful stone built village of Leonidio. After a short break you will follow the mountainous route towards the beach of Fokianos. This route is a motorcycle heaven! Nice asphalt, tight corners and wonderful scenery will accompany you to one of the nicest beaches in Greece. A true unspoiled paradise. From there the newly created seaside route to Kiparissi will simply leave you in awe. The village itself with the lovely architecture, the sandy beaches and the numerous tavernas will allow you to refresh and relax before heading Limenas Ieraka. As you approach this village you will notice the fjord like anaglyph of the place. A lovely place to visit prior to arriving in Monemvasia for your overnight stay.
