  • 1 Sparta — This historic city has a population of 10,000. It has two main arteries which make navigation really easy. To the west of the City is the beautiful, rugged Mt. Taygetos.
  • 2 Gytheion — A small fishing village. Nice seafood restaurants with plenty of beaches in the area mostly frequented by locals. Nearby Caves of Dyros is a large limestone cave system which is toured on a boat. Here you will find the point where Helen of Troy is said to have started the Trojan War. "The woman who launched a thousand ships."
  • 3 Monemvassia — The Rock of Gibraltar of Greece. Really pretty with an ancient walled city.
  • 4 Geraki Laconias — The seat of a medieval Frankish fiefdom of the Principality of Achaea at the western slopes of Mount Parnon. The village has several Byzantine-era churches.

Other destinationsEdit

  • 1 Elafonisos
  • 2 Kyparissi (Laconia) — A small (population approx. 400), beautiful village, combining sea and mountains. Ideal for mountain ramblers.
