East Mani
(Lakonian Mani)

The more you visit Mani, the more you want to go back, and the more you go back, the more new things you discover. Its rich history dates back to Homeric times and includes an important contribution to the Greek liberation struggle, with Mani always unsubdued, free, and unique. It is difficult to characterize Mani as just a tourist destination; rather, it makes more sense to become acquainted with everything that distinguishes the region during your visit there: the inhabitants, the landscape, the tower houses and megalithic buildings, the monasteries and Byzantine churches, the archaeological sites, the castles and historic sites, the caves, the natural beauty, and of course the sea and the beaches. We hope Exploring Greece will help you get to know all of these better.

How to Get There

By Road

There are two ways to reach Lakonian Mani by road (with your own car or by intercity bus, using KTEL Lakonia). The shortest route from Athens is the eastern road to Gythio: from Athens (Athina), start on the National Road (Ethniki Odos), heading from Athens to Tripoli, then continue through Sparta (Sparti) and on to Gythio. You will be on the national road through Sparta (213 kilometers), and then on provincial roads from there to Gythio (43 kilometers). The trip from Athens takes 3 to 3.5 hours by car and 4 to 4.5 hours by bus.

Approximate Distances

1. Athens - Gythio: 270 kilometers

2. Thessaloniki - Gythio: 773 kilometers

3. Patras - Gythio: 277 kilometers

4. Gythio - Mystras: 48 kilometers

5. Gythio - Monemvasia: 64 kilometers

6. Gythio - Areopoli: 28 kilometers

Alternatively, you can take the western road via Kalamata (240 kilometers from Athens) and Messinian Mani and head to Itylo (another 71 kilometers from Kalamata, about 1.5 hours) and then [Areopoli][TID:22015 ] (10 kilometers from Itylo). If you start in Athens, this road is longer both in kilometers and time (on the part from Kalamata to Itylo), and we do not recommend it. With your own car, it takes about 3.5 to 4 hours to get to Itylo. If you want to go by bus, use KTEL Messinia.

By Plane

Fly to Kalamata International Airport, then take a car or bus to Itylo, which is 71 kilometers away.

By Boat

In the summer, there are ferry routes running between Gythio and Kythira, Antikythira, and Kissamos (near Chania, Crete).

Useful Information

  • The entire main road network of Lakonian Mani, which starts at Itylo and ends at Gythio, moving south and then north along the coastline, plus the roads crossing the peninsula between Areopoli and Gythio and between Areopoli and Kotronas, adds up to just 110 kilometers. Most of these roads are in very good condition for comfortable driving. Therefore, a basic road tour of the area can be done in less than three hours (not including stops).
  • There are only four gas stations between Gythio and Pyrgos Dirou.
