heading south towards Mani
region and turn left to join road 82 for the vigorous mountain of Taigetos
, a windy road with beautiful views all the way. A stop is due at Mistras
huge castle, is a must to visit the place on this route. Couple of hours is needed to walk all the area of the castle and satisfaction will be in high levels, scenery wise as well.
Then continue towards Sparta
, the famous little town which use to born and raise the famous tough warriors of ancient Greece. The small town of Sparta
now days have nothing spectacular to offer only the views of Taigetos
mountains showing off how wild it is.
There are some places of ancient Sparta around the area, seek information and directions.
