I could even swim into the wreck! It was amazing!!
The entire tour took about 20min and was just astonishing!
Jumping back in the car we found a tiny restaurant on the side of the main road. Under some eucalyptus trees, we feasted on greek salads, dips and fish.
Kardamyli is the oldest named town in Greece, it was mentioned in Homer’s Iliad!
“Seven well-peopled cities I give him,
The first is Kardamyli
Near to the sea….”
-King Agamemmnon as he gifted states to Achilles
We had dinner at another amazing restaurant overlooking the bay and the sunset was spectacular.
Old town in Kardamyli is from the 1500’s and created by a single family who took a gamble settling there, soon their cousins and uncles and aunts joined them which became Kardamyli town.
The town itself is gorgeous, a blend of old architecture with new furnishings and cutesy shops. The people have beens strict that all new structures must be in line with old style of building so everything looks lovely.
After climbing the tower we walked the main street, taking in coffee, the locals, the tourists and eating froyo whilst browsing art and gift stores. Could’ve stayed longer but onwards we must go, driving to Methoni, listening to Rick Steves talking about Greek history (which is highly recommended!).
