No matter which way you turn in the Peloponnesian the scenery is stunning from the peaceful golden sandy beaches to the tops of staggering long range mountain views. Following sweeping highway vistas we visited Ancient Olympia, origin of the Olympics with still standing arches, columns, and a 45,000 seat stadium.
On good twisty roads to the Temple of Apollo in its mountain retreat that still defies the imagination of its creation 2500 years ago. From the far west of Kyllini to the mountain retreat of Dimitsana via Olympia our route traces some of the most rugged and remote areas of Greece.Wrestling a 1977 MGB convertible on long rally days with a movie star gorgeous co-driver is a trip of nostalgia. When was the last time you were happy to drive one handed holding the top up with the other three hands in a thunderstorm trying to not use third gear as the clutch slipped while avoiding rocky mudslides and goat herds?
