Travel by bus from Kalamata-Sparta-Monemvassia - Neapoli


does anybody know, if it is possible to travel by

bus from Kalamata- Neapoli (where the boat leaves to Kithira) or from

Nafplio to Monemvassia - Neapoli? by bus?

We wanted to rent a car and give it back at Neapoli, before we go on the boat, but I could not find any other drop off stations, then Kalamata or Nafplio...which means

the rest of the journey we have to do by bus...but are there good scedules and do they drive to Neapoli?????

If you can help, please we will be glad.


Kind regards

If it helps , there is a ferry on Sundays from Kalamata to Kythera. Also from Monemvasia on Fridays during the high season

Check out www.gtp/ .

There are also buses from Monemvasia , through Sparti to Kalamata.

Thanks so much. Acutally we need a ferry at wednesday 31st of July of latest 1.st of August 2013

we wanted to leave from Neapoli. But since we probably can only give back the car in Kalamata or Nafplio we need to catch busses which will bring us either to Monemvassia...(friday is a bit late) or Neapoli,

so we can get the ferry on wednesday or thursday.

Is it easy to get from Kalamata to Neapoli?

Thanks for helping me.

Kind Regards

There's a ferry from Gythio to Crete every Thursday afternoon which calls at Kythira on the way down.


From Kalamata, you would have to take a bus to either Areopoli or Sparti (easier) and take one from there to Gythio. There is a bus from Kalamata to Sparti at 9.15 on the day you want to travel and regular buses from Sparti to Gythio. You should have plenty of time but at a pinch, you could take a taxi from Sparti - it only takes about half an hour.

You don't say where you're picking up your car but for what it's worth, you can rent one in Sparti.
