Gythion

Gythion

This picturesque little town is located on the south of the Peloponnese. It is also well known as the ancient port of Sparta, being so close to both Ancient Sparta and the medieval town of Mystras. On the south it is close to the Diros Caves, the castle of Monemvasia on the southeast and the unique middle age villages of Mani. Mani is a legend by itself, a peninsula that is being characterized by a very dramatic and unique landscape composed by huge rocks, big cliffs, amazing sea views from its windy roads and stone tower houses that the locals used to build to either be protected by the pirate invasions, or from each other due to the so many family vendettas.

Client Testimonials

Niki's knowledge of the history there as well as how she related it to all of us was a perfect balance!
Julie
Niki knows her stuff, and she comes across as an intelligent and credible source of verified information. My wife and I used her as our group tour guide in Olympia and then again in Athens, and we were very pleased.
Tony
I definitely recommend other cruisers to book independently through Niki Vlachou.
