Pointers for a pleasant journey

How to get here

There are a number of ways to get to Kardamili: you can board a ferry, catch a flight, take a bus, drive down to the Mani, or even sail to Kardamili harbour... It all just depends on how much time you have on your hands, how you enjoy travelling, and whether you like to rent a car or prefer to use your own. If you're considering driving down as many visitors do from northern/western Europe, you can bypass the Western Balkans by taking one of the numerous ferries that on a daily basis connect Italy to Greece: crossings are extremely comfortable, ships are brand new, ticket prices are very reasonable, and then getting from the port of Patras to Kardamili is as easy as ABC. If you're instead planning to fly to Athens or Kalamata (or coming in from the islands by boat to the port of Githeion), buses and air-conditioned long-distance coaches are extremely relaxing, taxis and private cabs are reliable and safe, and car hire rates are competitive. Whatever way you choose to travel, arriving directly into Kardamili's main square is as simple as 123, and Greece is a country rich with colourful, detailed and exciting landscapes, so your journey down into the Mani will be inspiring and pleasant.
