I'm working through this area as I come out of Athens.
Nights in Nafplio (2), Monemvasia (1), down through Mani (taking two days) with night in Gerolimenas (1), Kardamyli (1).
Seeing the main sites and some wineries.
But then I get into some grey area.
Was thinking of two nights in Kardamyli, one at the end of Mani and a second after a day trip to Mystras.
After looking over Mystras, I do not think I want to see it, especially the 4hr round trip.
So I might cut that day out and head to Olympia from Kardamyli, see those sites, and the next day off to the rest of the trip
(Diakupto and train to Kalavryta and back, then on to Delphi).
Am I missing out of not going to Mystras?
Thus adding the day somewhere else?
Probably add time in Santorini or Naxos, maybe a day trip to Hydra (while in Athens).
Very much appreciate any input.
