    On this special 2-day private boat tour from Chania, you can explore Monemvasia, located on the south Coast of Peloponnese, 83 nautical miles from Crete! Monemvasia is well known as the Gibraltar of the East or the Rock because it is built on a “rock.” In addition, it is well known as one of the most romantic places in Greece! Explore the Old Town, swim into the crystal clear waters at the cove of Portelo, taste local dishes in traditional taverns inside the Medieval Castle, and hike to the fortress of Goulas in the Upper Town to enjoy the breathtaking view at sunset.
