Kalamáta – a holiday in unspoilt Greece

Greece

The olive is larger and more pointed than usual. The dark violet colour comes from hanging on the branches of the tree longer than its green cousins. Even the taste is softer – but this is a genuine, hand-picked Kalamata olive Besides olives, a holiday in Kalamáta offers a piece of the most authentic Greece and its history.

 

Equally genuine and Greek is the coastal city of Kalamáta – a name that is only now becoming known among travellers.

 

Kalamáta is located on the Peloponnese peninsula, where other key attractions are also located, such as Epidaurus, the grandest amphitheatre in ancient Greece, and Olympia, site of the Olympic Games in classical times.

 

In addition to the wealth of cultural history, the best thing in Kalámata is its authentic atmosphere in which time stops. In all good conscience, laze away the day on the beach or park yourself in one of the cafés and restaurants on the seaside promenade with a good book. On two days a week, the city fills with action: Wednesdays and Saturdays are market days and a great opportunity to buy olive oil and other Greek delights as a souvenir. A holiday in Kalamáta is an interesting combination of a beach holiday and normal Greek everyday life.
