We'll be hiring a car from Kalamata airport in mid July. What would be the quickest route to Monemvasia? We love mountain/river/coastal scenery, but would just want to get to M asap, then explore the surroundings at a later stage. Is there a new road near completion which would help us? Where would it start from and end up? How long should we allow for the whole journey [without stopping] at a speed of say 70 kph? Many thanks. Barry L.
