Combining interesting travelling experiences
Messinia can be the “base” for exceptionally interesting excursions to neighboring places. Not very far away from Kyparissia and the region of Trifilia lies the well known and beautiful beach of Kaiafas as well as the internationally famous archaeological site of Ancient Olympia while there is easy access to Killini in about one hour and a half from where ships embark on for Zante and Kefalonia.
Mountainous Arcadia and the quaint villages of Stemnitsa and Dimitsana are also close by. From Kalamata there is an exceptional route via Taygetos to Sparta from where one might either visit the unique place of Mystras and then head to Githeio or let the mediaeval charm of Castle Town of Monemvasia take him back in time and history!
For those who will visit the Messinian Mani, it is sure that they will experience the rough beauty of the place, as there are unique tower houses, the well known Cave of Diros and the southern part of continental Europe, Cape Tenaro!
