Shore Excursion Sparta: itinerary

We’ll begin our Gythion shore excursion with a trip to Mystras, a major tourist destination. After around a 50-minute bus we’ll arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage Site to explore its archaeology.

During our visit to this castle town, we’ll see temples of Kristóforos Agios, Agios Nikolaos and Agios Georgios. Famous for their Byzantine architecture we’ll also visit the funerary chapel and the Palace of Mystras.

Our Gythion shore excursion will continue with a 15-minute bus ride to Sparta.

This city-state has a tough reputation. It was the home of the feared Spartan army, whose solders were essentially born and raised as warriors. In Greek mythology Sparta is the home of Menelaus and the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen of Troy.

Thankfully we’ll take a more relaxed approach to the tour; stopping at Town Square to take a stroll. From there, we’ll complete the Gythion – Sparta and Mystras shore excursion and return to the port by bus.
