Athens Airport (ATH) to Stemnitsa Village Taxi – Minivan
The beauty of Stemnitsa takes your breath away as soon as you first see it, as it seems to float on these steep heights next to the gorge. Declared a historic protected settlement since 1985, it is an entire attraction for its natural beauty and position but mainly for its traditional architecture, its stone mansions, the view to the gorge, its picturesque cobblestones, its old churches, the its traditional shops and all this drowned in the sun, greenery and peace.
A place with a long history, it was declared the first capital of revolutionary Greece, while on May 26, 1821, the First Peloponnesian Senate was established here. The long tradition in the art of metals gave birth to the great Public School of Silversmithing and highlighted rare professions and arts such as coppersmiths, blacksmiths and goldsmiths. There is no doubt that the rare combination of great natural beauty, stunning views, rich tourist infrastructure, local history and tradition, make Stemnitsa a wonderful destination, for short or regular holidays, in this charming part of the Arcadian land.
