Mani, the central peninsula of the three in South Pe­lo­pon­nese, stretches up to Kalamata on the west coast, and to Gytheio on the east. It is washed by the cool seas of the Messenian and Lakonian gulfs, and wa­tered by the Taigetos massif.

Mani is one of the most historical places in Greece since its famous not only for the famous ancient civilization of Sparta but also for its strength and solidarity in keeping the Greek nation alive during the Turkish occupation (1453-1821). It is one of the most beautiful places in Greece, combining a scent of aristocratic mansions of renaissance architecture with the ambience of the Mediterranean flair. Visitors can enjoy the unique landscape of Mani and visit the Byzantine churches, Frankish castles, secluded sandy beaches and stunning scenery. The area is famous because of the film "Before Midnight", sequel to Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, as it was wrapped and shot.

Mani is also known for the popular beaches of Kalogria, Stoupa, Kardamyli, Mavrovouni and Agios Nikolaos with nice pebble and some sandy as well. Kardamyli is a spectacularly beautiful seaside village located in Mani, the coast of Greece defined by travel connoisseurs as the New Côte d'Azur. Stoupa is well-known because of the making of the movie "Zorba the Greek". Mavrovouni beach is one of the favourite places for the "caretta-caretta" sea turtles to lay their eggs in the sand. The nests are surveyed and protected of the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece called Archelon. Tourists can also visit the ancient tower houses of Mani (pyrgospita), the Diros stalactite and stalagmite caves, near Oitylo, which are partly underwater and visitors tour them in gondola-like boats.

Gytheio is a lively, charming little harbour town. A long sea-side promenade, the colourful fishing boats, the narrow streets and stairways produce the typical Greek environment which fascinates every visitor. A little island called "Kranai" and connected with the mainlaind by a short dam, protects the port of Gytheio town from the open sea. It is a beautiful place with pine-trees and an ideal view-point to overlook the gulf towards the Parnon mountain range in the east and Taygetos in the north-west. The pleace is also known by the Paul Mazursky film 'The Tempest' with John Cassevettes, because it was filmed near Gytheon.

Some of the places that are worth visiting are Kalamata city, Pilos, Methoni, Koroni towns, Ancient Messene, Neda River, Voidokilia beach, Pollimnio Waterfalls.

Visitors will be astonished by the wealth waiting for them in the form of local cuisine and will surprisingly discover the fundamental relation between food and enjoyment to the Greek everyday life.
