Have you ever wanted to take a roadtrip through the picturesque mainland but were too afraid to miss out on the islands? If so, look no further as this budget friendly package will take you through the magnificent Peloponnesian coast, all the way to Kythira, a hidden gem of the Ionian islands on the crossroads between the Ionian, Aegean and Cretan seas. After you've taken a day to acclimate yourself to Greece and exploring it's cosmopolitan capital, you will hop on your rental car and drive towards your first stop in the Peloponnese.

Nafplion, the first capital of modern Greece, is admittedly one of the most beautiful towns in the country, with its signature castle of Bourtzi floating calmly in an islet just outside the main port. You will have ample opportunity to stroll down Nafplion's alleys, get plenty of souvenirs in its stylish shops, and sample some of the many bars and restaurants. On the road to Nafplion it is highly recommended that you stop by the Corinth Canal for a quick photo session and the remarkable theater of Epidaurus.

From Nafplion you will move to Neapolis to board the ferry that will take you to Kythira. If you start early enough, you will also have time for a detour to the Castle of Mystras in Sparta. In Kythira, with a car at your disposal, you can traverse the island and explore every inch of it. Secluded beaches await in every corner, while monasteries, medieval castles, caves, waterfalls and other points of interest can be found all around!

The tranquility of Kythira is perfectly juxtaposed by the wild natural beauty of Mani, your fourth and final destination in this roadtrip. The pride of Peloponnese, Mani, is a town with rich history during medieval times, and its multitude of lighthouses, castles and forts. A visit to Cape Matapan and the Diros Caves is highly recommended.
