Tourists that visit Argolida usually refer to tourist guides, which
mostly recommend county’s southern areas as best place to visit. The cities
of Argos and Nauplia,
the archeological sites of Mycenae,
Tiryntha and Epidaurus,
as well as various southern seaside resorts are very popular. However, few visitors
have met the breathtaking view of the Argolic mountains and even ewer can imagine
this other side of Argolida.
All mountainous villages have common characteristics. They are linked with narrow streets and pathways and they have common manners and customs, feasts etc.
The architecture of those villages is typical. It represents mountainous Peloponnese: two-storeyed, gray houses made of stone with wooden loggia and several flowerpots upon the wooden or stony stairs. Just 10-30km away from Argos, all villages can be excellent mountain resorts. They are natural balconies, where visitors have the opportunity to scan the sea and the plain among the perennial trees.
