Gythio, once the port of ancient Sparta, is a charming coastal town with numerous cafes and fish taverns. The beautiful neoclassical buildings are built on a steep slope. Climb the stairs uphill and enjoy the view over the sea and the town. Also, take a look around the island of Kranai, where the legendary hero Paris spent the first night with the (abducted!) beautiful Helen. Beach lovers will enjoy Mavrovouni sandy beach where the sea waves high. At the quieter Valtaki beach lies the intriguing shipwreck of the Dimitros.
