Overview
Just a breath from Kalamata stands mount Kalathi, a mountain visible from any side of the city. You can see it sometimes clear, sometimes lost in the clouds. It is very rare for a mountain of such height to be sited so close to the sea and the city. On its slopes picturesque villages smothered in green and even higher on its summit, forests of fir and pine trees and a stunning view to the Messinian Bay and the city of Kalamata.We begin our hiking trip from the cosmopolitan suburb of Kalamata the village of Kato Verga by following the cobbled path ascending west to the village of Ano Verga. A historic village perched on the mountainside with a plethora of old stone houses, narrow alleys and springs with crystal waters.

George thank you for your kind words, hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Greece. It was a plesure spending some time together with your adorable family and also the little research for your last name that gave me a little bit of extra knowledge for my beloved region the Mani. Hope to meet again in the future.
