The Highlights of Kalamata town - Kalamata on foot, Food tour (half day)
This city tour begins from the port of Kalamata or the hotel of your choise, following a pleasant walk through the beautiful urban landscape and the railway park.
As you walk to the large central square of the capital city, a vibrant pedestrian zone full of cafes and commercial shops will be revealed before your eyes.

Leaving the historical center you will head uphill to the oldest part of town, built on the ancient Fares, and from the medieval castle you can enjoy a wonderful view of the city. Going down you can visit the Monastery of St. Constantine and Helen famous both in Greece and abroad for its silk art.
You will wrap up your tour with a short stop at one of the charming cafes in the Historical Centre for coffee, Greek donuts "loukoumades" or a delicious souvlaki and then head back to the port.
