Private Tour to Pylos & Methoni
Join me on a private day trip to Pylos and Methoni in a luxurious air-conditioned vehicle, with free WiFi on board. Two of the most beautiful coastal towns of Messenia.
The first time that you confront the bay of Navarino, combined with the castle and the green colors of Pylos, is going to be one of the moments of the tour that you will never forget.
This trip is ideal for travelers coming by cruise ships for few hours.
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.
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.
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.
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!
