Arkadia is a region located in Peloponnese. Its capital is Tripoli with neoclassical houses and an Archaeological museum.
The charm of Arkadia is its countryside and little villages such as Karitena with its stone houses, narrow streets and Frankish Fort and The Dimitsana not only with stone-built architecture but also famous for its cuisine and traditions. Worth visiting are the villages of Stemnitsa (known for jewellery making) and Lagadia (known for its skilled stone artisans and beautiful nature). One of the pretty mountain villages is Vlacherna at 1100 meters with its historic monastery by the same name.
The nature of the region allows any eco activity such as rafting, hiking, mountain climbing and ski. The Ostrakina ski center in Ostrakina in Mainalon (or Menalon), Gortynia, at 1600 meters has earned awards for its natural beauty.
