Travel to Kyparissia by car 

To go from Athens to Kyparissia by car, you follow the National Highway Athens-Tripoli. In the junction of Tripoli, you follow the signs to Kalamata. Along the road, you will meet a junction with signs to Kyparissia on one way and Kalamata on the other way. You follow the signs to Kyparissia. The road after Tripoli is not highway but rural and has only one side per direction, so extra attention is required. Click here for a map of Southern Greece and Kyparissia.
