    The following are just a few suggestions:
    Navarino Bay was the scene of the famous 1827 naval battle in which an allied British, French and Russian armada defeated the Turkish-Egyptian fleet marking a decisive turning point in the Greek War of Independence. This was the last major naval battle in the world fought entirely with sailing ships. 5 mins by car – reachable on foot.
    The Palace of Nestor is only 13kms away and is a unique two-storey Mycenean palace which was discovered in 1939. This is where the first evidence of the first known written language, Linear B, was discovered.
    Ancient Messini was built in 369 BC and is about 55kms away. The site is still being unearthed by archeologists, but it is possible to visit the gymnasium, the theatre and one of the best preserved ancient stadiums still in existence.
