How to Get There
To reach the Municipal Unit of Voies and Neapoli by road (with your own car or by intercity bus, using KTEL Lakonia), go through Sparta (Sparti) and Molaoi. From Athens (Athina), start on the National Road (Ethniki Odos), heading from Athens to Tripoli, then continue through Sparta (Sparti), Skala, and Molaoi to Neapoli. The national road extends to Sparta (213 km); afterwards, there is a provincial road, with several turns at some points before Sparta. From the turnoff toward Molaoi after Sparta, about 110 kilometers of mediocre roads take us to Neapoli. The total distance from Athens to Neapoli is 330 kilometers; by car, it takes approximately 4 to 4.5 hours.

Neapoli is the closest point for crossing to Kythira (at Diakofti harbor). There is more than one sailing scheduled every day with the ship F/B Porfyrousa, especially during the summer months. The trip takes 75 minutes.
Eight kilometers northwest of Neapoli, in Pounta, small ferryboats called slippers (pantofles) because of their shape depart for the 10-minute trip to the little island of Elafonisos. They leave frequently, about every half hour, and during the summer months the ferry runs at least until 8:00 in the evening. The cost for two people with a car is approximately 12 Euros.
