Start the tour by stepping back in time to the Ancient Greek era with a visit to the Temple of Hera. Admire this marvelous feat of construction which dates back to ancient time. Then, head north for a guided tour of the 15th-century Monastery of Megali Panagia, an excellent example of Byzantine Greek architecture. Enjoy a short walk through the traditional mountain village of Pyrgos which is famous for its honey and ceramics for a short walk.
