How to reach Ancient Messini

Hello all, I'm planning to have a 2 weeks holiday in Peloponnese this August. I'll arrive at Kalamata Airport the 9th of August and I'd like to visit Ancient Messini as first thing, sleeping a night in Mavromati village and the go back to Kalamata the following day (Sunday 10th of August) to head south into the Mani.

Do you know how I can reach Mavromati and go back to Kalamata? Searching the web it seems difficult to find public transport (no bus at least during week end).

Thanks for you help.

There are buses from Kalamata bus station to Mavromati at 05.45 and 14.05, but no services on Sundays. Most(all?) buses passing the airport gates, 100 yards from Arrivals ( going left airport behind you) terminate at Kalamata bus station.

Lots of taxis at the airport, so Nikos's suggestion might be the most convenient.

Make sure you have a meal or at least a coffee at the taverna that overlooks Ancient Messini, It's a wonderful traditional taverna with good view and a stunning view of the ancient site.
