7. Around Trifylia. In the greater region, at variable driving distances depending on your departure point stand various sites that are all well worthwhile: the Temple of Apollo Epicurious at Bassae, Ancient Olympia, Ancient Messene, the Palace of Nestor, Nestor’s tholos tomb, the Archaeological Museum of Chora, the Old Navarino Castle known as Paleokastro above Voidokilia Beach, as well as the fortresses at Pylos, Methoni and Koroni.
Also on your bucket list should be Kalamata’s Benakio Archaeological Museum in the Prefecture’s capital. During your travels, make sure to bring along your bathing suits and snorkelling masks, as you are sure to find a gorgeous beach to take a dip and cool off!
