Home / Deep Mani / Gythio


The main road running from Areopolis to Gythio follows a fertile, river valley and takes around 40 minutes to complete by car. This is the quickest route to get to Sparti/Mystras from Stoupa/Kradamyli with the picturesque waterfront town of Gythio providing an obvious break en route. The port sees a few cruise ships come and go and there is a weekly ferry to Kythira and Crete. At the far end of the town as you approach are numerous banks, the bus station and tourist information office and the remains of a Roman theatre. It is a very pleasant place to stop for lunch, to stay in overnight or just to have a revitalising coffee en route to Mystras.
