Autumn in Western Greece
A journey into beauty
Steeped in autumnal colours and full of beautiful surprises.
Nature lovers in the know are in on the secret… Western Greece in Autumn is a destination with no shortage of gorgeous surprises. The trees have donned their crimson and yellow cloaks and wispy clouds adorn an horizon swept clean by the first rains. The moist earth surrenders its special fragrances to the air while, in quiet courtyards, pomegranate trees almost seem to topple with the weight of their fruit. Even the sea and sun seem to take on the hues of the ripening landscape. It’s definitely the season to pick new experiences in Western Greece just as local people take to the fields to pick their olives and grapes to put in store for the months ahead.
Leafing through the past
In the idyllic environment of the valley of the river Alphios, the Ancient Olympia stands as an eternal symbol of humanism. In ancient Thermo, the archaeological treasures bear witness to the fascinating history of the city and the Archaeological Museums of Olympia, Patras and Aigio bring the past to life with their astonishing array of exhibits.
