Mystras is a fortress town in Laconia, Peloponnese, Greece.


Get in[edit]

There are local buses from Sparta, right in front of the Archaeological Museum (€1.60). Ask the tourism information there about timetables, specifically about the last return bus. These buses are infrequent, so make sure to know all the relevant information.

The 1 terminal bus stop is at a restaurant's parking lot, 10 minutes on foot downhill from the ticket office.

By car, the ruins are about 7 km (4.3 mi) west of Sparta, along the EO84 national road.

Get around[edit]

The ruins are along a steep slope with many stone stairs in poor condition. Make sure to wear appropriate footwear and watch your step. Expect to climb about 250 m (820 ft) to visit everything.


The ticket to visit all the sites is €12 (regular price). Half-price tickets available for the usual conditions.
