Korfos is a traditional fishing village located in the eastern Peloponnese that has developed into a popular resort with good facilities for visiting sailors. It’s a natural harbor that offers good protection in all weathers and in September plays host to an exciting yacht racing event. While Korfos is an ideal place simply to relax and enjoy your Flotilla, taking advantage of the bars, tavernas, fine gravel beach and other resort facilities, those with an interest in the wonders of Ancient Greece will have a tough time deciding which one of the many incredible sites that lie within easy reach to visit. Mycenae is the site of Agamemnon’s legendary palace and the possible location of his murder on the return from the Trojan War.
The ancient city of Corinth occupies a rambling sequence of sites, the main enclosure of which is given a sense of scale by the majestic ruins of the Temple of Apollo. The ruins of the medieval city and its fortress which occupy the stunning acropolis site of Acrocorinth are even more impressive. And Nauplie, with its twin fortresses, is a lively and beautiful Greek town that exudes a grand and faded elegance. When you’ve had enough history, there are hot springs at the nearby spa resort of Loutraki that have been attracting visitors in search of the ‘cure’ since 1847.
