We were leaving Kalavryta having as final destination a village next to Tripoli where we’ve got a contract for a photo shoot. We had one free day to spend in the mountainous hinterland of Peloponnese. Our first choice was to visit the Spileo Limnon (Cave of the Lakes). Eventually we changed our plans and we didn’t regret at all.
The temple of Poseidon at sunset is one of the most typical postcards from Greece and also one of the top-selling tours for tourists visiting Athens. The sunset is undeniably spectacular and it would be a shame to leave Attica and miss it even if, from a photographer’s point of view, the temple is just as interesting in the morning. Luckily near the temple there are several places to spend the night, to suit all tastes.
Driving in Greece and particularly in Athens, one might have the impression that signs and traffic lights are optional or serve an advisory role and that Greek drivers don’t share the same traffic code with the rest of Europe. Well, after years of driving in this country, I can safely say that this is not just an impression! The rules are the same; what changes is the interpretation!
