This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Niokastro: Pylos Castle, Bay of Navarino, Pylos, Pylos-Nestor 240 01 Greece
Our trip will begin from your hotel and crossing streets filled with olive and orange trees but also with myths and traditions, for about an hour, we will reach the hill in front of Pylos. The first time that you confront the bay of Navarino, combined with the castle and the green colours of Pylos, is going to be one of the moments of the tour that you will never forget. From up there, where is going to be also our first stop, you will be able to see both small and larger islands. The huge rocks in front of us look like an entrance to the sea and are parts of the island of Sfaktiria. At the southern end of this island, you will be able to admire the ruins of a fortification wall built by the Spartans, in 425 BC, during the Peloponnesian war. The picturesque town of Pylos will welcome us soon. While enjoying your coffee at the town's main square we will learn everything about its history. There, among the plane trees, stands the monument of the Three Admirals from Russia, France and England. You will also learn stories and tales of these three philhellenists. Before we leave Pylos, we will make our next stop at the castle known as Niokastro. It was built by the Turks in 1573 AD, but like every other castle in the region, it constantly changed hands. As you walk the cobblestone streets you will admire the four cylindrical towers and also the aqueduct, a legacy left by the Venetians.
Duration: 3 hoursStop At:
Methoni Castle, Methoni, Pylos-Nestor 240 06 Greece
Our next stop will be the nearby town of Methoni. The castle of this town is one of the most impressive of the Peloponnese, since one of its parts, Bourtzi, reaches into the sea, like an artificial ... island! Walking between walls and battlements, it will whisper its own secrets, starting from 1500 AD, when Venetian soldiers started to build it. After so many battles, naval battles and castle constructions, you will definitely get hungry. The tavern under the walls of Methoni, almost inside the sea and overlooking Bourtzi, will satisfy your hunger. Alternatively, we can directly take the way back, so as to have the time to enjoy your afternoon swim in Kalamata.
