Private transfers to Mystras
Discover one of the most important towns of the Byzantine Empire by booking a private transfer to Mystras. Located at the southeastern side of the Peloponnese peninsula, the archaeological site of Mystras is a history monument of great importance not only for Greece, but for the world too, since it has been declared as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Plus, it is located on the slope of Mount Taygetos, thus providing an outstanding view over the valley of Eurotas river. So, if you are in Pylos or anywhere near it, Mystras is a must-visit, and we can drive you there safely and in maximum comfort.
One of the most fascinating buildings you get to see when you visit Mystras is the Palace of the Despots. In fact, it is a complex of five buildings that combines different architectural styles, since it was partly built by the Franks before the Byzantines took over. Apart from the architecture itself, you will get the chance to admire the spectacular view of the Eurotas valley and the plain of Sparta.

The archaeological site of Mystras is also renowned for its well-preserved churches that are of exceptional architecture and bear phenomenal frescoes of great artistic value. The Church of Agioi Theodoroi is one of them. It is the largest and oldest chapel in Mystras and its frescoes date back to the 13th century. The Cathedral of Agios Demetrios is also one of the most visited churches in Mystras because of its mixed architectural style and its impressive wall paintings. There is also the Monastery of Panagia Perivleptos, the Church of Panagia Hodegetria and the Church of Panagia Pantanassa, each one of them having its own unique style and artistic importance.
Mystras Archaeological Museum is another interesting place to visit. There you can have a look at Byzantine exhibits that include sculptures, ceramics, icons, everyday items (such as jewelry and coins), etc.
