Actress Melina Kanakaredes talks travel

I found this article a week or so ago and have been meaning to share it. It’s a travel interview with Melina Kanakaredes, one of the starts on CSI: NY.

She talks about traveling in Greece mostly. For example her favorite vacation spot:

Monemvasia, Greece. It’s in the Peloponnese. It is one of the most romantic, beautiful places in Greece and it’s where the Greeks go for their honeymoon. I’ve traveled to Greece so many times and it wasn’t until a few years ago that I discovered it. It’s a mountain that had been separated from the mainland during an earthquake in 375AD. It is now an island without cars. You are either on foot or donkey. The exterior of the buildings are 500AD, but the inside is 2009. You dive off the rocks into the ocean to swim. You are surrounded by amazing 360-degree views of the water. It has five restaurants, all great. It is the ultimate secluded honeymoon getaway.

Sounds like a nice visit but I wonder if you have to have TV star money to enjoy this island. With only 5 restaurants I guess they could charge whatever they want…

The closest thing I could find on this blog was a Santorini vacation plan.

    I haven’t been to Monemvasia, but did live a year in Greece. I can’t imagine any place in Greece that wouldn’t be wonderful to visit. It is the most amazing country, with a fascinating history and spectacular scenery. Of course, there’s the music, the archaeology, the food…I could go on and on…
