Arcadia is a closed land, all mountains and high peaks with large fir forests and lush vegetation. An unspoiled land, little known, full of surprises, truly bewitching. On the eastern coast it is washed by the gulf of Argos and the Mirtoo Sea. Here and there the sea has carved fantastic bays and peninsula out of the land.
In fact, whoever roams through Arcadia today will get to know a part of the country that has remained virtually unchanged since antiquity? Arcadia is a natural wonderland whose mountain dwellers have preserved it intact up to today.
It forms the largest prefecture on the Peloponnesian peninsula. It currently covers about 18% of the entire peninsula, although it once extended to about 20 to 25% of the peninsula.
The prefecture has a skiing resort on Mount Mainalon, located about 20 km NW of Tripoli. The Greek National Road 7 (E65) highway runs through Arcadia on a north-west to south-east axis and nearly forms in the southwest the end of the highway. Arcadia has two tunnels. The Artemisio Tunnel opened first, followed by a tunnel east of Megalopolis; both serve traffic flowing between Messenia and Athens.
Arcadia has its present-day capital at Tripoli.
