Over the causeway from the mainland and a whirl round to the South side of the islet, we reach the end of the road, facing a medieval archway into darkness. We have reached the entrance to “old” Monemvasia.
Through the ancient passageway (no cars allowed) and we come out on the other side to find this cobblestone path at the heart of the town leading to some local restaurants, bars and shops.
But we’re not going up there. The sun is nearly set and we have some exploring to do…
Instead, we’re dipping into this tunnel on the right.
