Koroni and Foinikounta Day Trip from Costa Navarino
Our trip will begin from your hotel and crossing streets filled with olive and orange trees but also with myths and traditions, for about fifteen minutes, we will reach the hill in front of Pylos.

From up there, you will be able to see both small and larger islands. The huge rocks in front of us look like an entrance to the sea and are parts of the island of Sfaktiria.

At the southern end of this island, you will be able to admire the ruins of a fortification wall built by the Spartans, in 425 BC, during the Peloponnesian war.

The picturesque town of Pylos will welcome us soon. While enjoying your coffee at the town\'s main square we will learn everything about its history. There, among the plane trees, stands the monument of the Three Admirals from Russia, France and England. You will also learn stories and tales of these three philhellenists.

Before we leave Pylos, we will make our next stop at the castle known as  Niokastro. It was built by the Turks in 1573 AD, but like every other castle in the region it constantly changed hands. As you walk the cobblestone streets you will admire the four cylindrical towers and also the aqueduct, a legacy left by the Venetians.

Our next stop will be the nearby town of Foinikouda. We will have our first stop there, to admire the sea and optionally for a coffee.  
In half an hour distance we will see the red roofs of the houses of Koroni. The castle of this town is one of the most impressive of the Peloponnese, as we will have the opportunity to walk into a real prison. Walking between walls and battlements, it will whisper its own secrets, starting from 700 AD, when Venetian soldiers started to build it.

After so many battles, naval battles and castle constructions, you will definitely get hungry. The tavern under the walls of the castle, almost inside the sea, will satisfy your hunger. Alternatively, we can directly take the way back, so as to have the time to enjoy your afternoon swim in your hotel.
