Known as the Byzantine Pompeii, the medieval ruins of Mystras offers a fascinating glimpse into the might of the Eastern Roman Empire. Journey through lush countryside filled with orange, fig and mulberry trees, to the modern town of Sparta, once a powerful city famed for its fearless fighters and home to a statue of its legendary warrior Leonidas. At the top of a high hill are the spectacular ruins of Mystras, the centre of Byzantine power in southern Greece for almost 200 years. Wander the eerily deserted streets of the once-invincible fortress, and take in the magnificent views from the Metropolis.
