If your trip to Kalamata is all locked in but your itinerary is a little on the empty side, let us give you a few hints and tips.
Plan a stop at Archaeological Museum of Messenia. It's one sight you'll usually find on travelers' to-do lists. Kalamata Municipal Central Library and Historical and Folklore Museum of Kalamata are also nearby and worth a detour.
You'll want to explore nearby Pylos. What's 25 miles when you've got your own rental car? The journey there is half the fun! Explore the area beginning with Ancient Pylos (Nestor's Palace) and Museum, Pylos Castle and Paleokastro. Situated 22 miles away, Pylos-Nestoras is another place to aim for. If you drop by, don't miss Nestor’s Palace, Hora Archaeological Museum and Neo Kastro.
Nothing screams vacation like jumping in the car, blasting some tunes and heading to the seaside. Kalamata has some incredible beaches close by, so grab something to read (and a kite if the wind's up) and take a jaunt to one of these fantastic options:
Here are our recommendations on how to hop behind the wheel of a rental car with some extra cash in your wallet:
Kalamata is big. You could vacation for a week or two here and barely scratch the surface. If you want to experience as much as possible in this thriving metropolis, a rental car is a must. Keep in mind that driving in big cities generally comes with tight streets and limited parking spaces. But don't stress — a small, economical car will make this much easier to navigate. If you're going to head out of the city and take in some of the rocky coastlines that Kalamata is well known for, you'll probably prefer a car with more power. A mid-size or full-size SUV are perfect for scenic road trips.
For some of us, owning a high-end vehicle may be a little out of reach. But renting the car of your dreams can easily be a reality! Imagine the joy of tearing down the open road in a high-end convertible, even if it's only for a short while. Or perhaps all you're after is a cheap ride to bring you from A to B. Flashy or affordable? Either way, there's a rental car to suit your style in Kalamata.
