Concierge.com's insider take:
After Byzantium fell to the Turks in 1453, Mystras was the last capital of the great empire, filled with palaces, churches, and monasteries. Now it's a ghost town. Only a tiny community of nuns lives here, housed in the Pantanassa monastery (you can buy their embroidery). Spend a haunting afternoon poking about the ruins hereit's likely you'll see only a handful of other people. All Mystras sites open daily. NovApr: 8:303, MayOct: 87; 5 Euros.
