The conditions are great, from Corinth you follow the motorway which is in excelent condition and in places very scenic, but note it is a toll road with frontal toll stations regulary along the route, have some euro coins handy to speed up things ( i think the total toll for the route should be about 8 euros) , shortly after Corinth the motorway splits; take the turn signposted for Kalamata and follow this motorway until you will reach the exit signposted for Patra and Pyrgos (about 1 hour after the motorway fork) , you will get on to a normal 2 lane road which also is in good condition now follow this road untill Kalo Nero and take the left turn there for Kyparissa,
It should take you less than 2 hours to make the tripEdited: 28 March 2018, 09:59
For Kyparissa - Gythio the fastest way would be to go back the same way and take the motorway back and go towards Athens but at the interchange near Gefyra you take the motorway towards Sparti / Sparta, go throu Sparta and take the country road towards Gythio , should take about 2 hours
If time is not constrainig and you want a very scenic view you could go to Kalamata and then take the road over the mountains towards sparta, this route is one of the most scenic drives in Greece in my opinion, but it would cost you at least one aditional hour on your trip. But is only slightly longer
All roads mentioned are in good condition, but if you opt for the mountain route be vary of lose stones that might be present on the roadway
I have driven all of these routes and there are no problems, just take it carefull and you will be fine, driving in the Peloponesse is generaly a very pleasent experience,Edited: 28 March 2018, 10:07
RainbowDolphin can you clarify what route you are referring to. You might find this recent thread useful though it's not relating the fastest route which is on good roads via Tripoli until the last bit of road to Kyparissi which I believe is not so good - but maybe local expert philhellene will be along to advise further:
Auch yes it is very possible that :) hehe good catch , these random transliteration differences occuring are a killer sometimes, didnt realize there is another town almost with the same name on the other coast :)Edited: 28 March 2018, 11:49
Happens all the time. We loved Elafonissos (island) but people think we're talking about Elafonissi, Crete.
And then you have Agios Nikolaos............. confusing
It’s a shame the OP hasn’t come back to confirm.
