Things to See and Do in Kalamata

Kalamata is the second largest city on the peninsula, behind Tripoli. It is located right on the coast and has a thriving port. It is famous for being the home of Kalamata olives, so relaxing in the sun with a bowl of these is a must.

If you are after an alternative to beaches then Kalamata is full of things to do. It has a range of museums and churches that date back to the 10th Century. The best examples of the local architecture include the Castle of Kalamata and Saint Apostles Church.

After topping up on the culture and gorging yourselves on the local olives maybe a bit of retail therapy is in order? There’s a range of shopping available so you can hit the bargain trail for as long as you want.

Kalamata Day Trips

If you are looking to head out of the urban environment and into more peaceful surroundings then you have your pick of some stunning locations.

Within driving distance of the airport are some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe and the Bay of Pylos is right up there. Famous for being the place where the Spartans were defeated in the Battle of Pylos there are still some ancient remains to survey as you stroll along the shore.

Also within a short drive is the charming coastal town of Koroni, positioned delicately in the shadow of an overlooking Venetian castle. A drive to the harbour is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon and you could spend some time wandering around the delightful shops and cafes here.

With all the history to learn about, architecture to gaze at and beaches to relax on, the Peloponnese Peninsula is a fantastic choice for a holiday. There is a main road that tracks the coastline so driving around is very simple.
