Monemvasia has become popular in recent years for couples looking for a romantic holiday, firstly with Athenians who kept coming back for weekends in summer and winter. Now visitors come from all over Greece and from abroad.
Many of the couples who choose Monemvasia just want to hide away in one of the old mansions that have been restored and converted into love nests, or else stay in one of the many comfortable hotels in the region. Others take advantage of their visit to explore the beautiful landscape and beaches.
