Traffic Information

The Peloponnese peninsula is an extremely large area, so while driving is fairly easy in the region, if you are travelling between cities you may need to prepare for long journey times. The main airport in the area is Kalamata Airport, which is located in the south. The E65 Highway will take you north to Tripoli, and the 82 will take you east to the famous city of Sparta. There are several highways that go all the way to Athens, but if you wish to head to Patras and the coastal areas in the north west, you may have to take a longer, winding route. This is because much of the northern area is mountainous, with only small and narrow roads.

Sixt Tip

The Peloponnese peninsula is a diverse area that showcases everything that Greece has to offer. From vast mountains and deep valleys inland to the wide sandy beaches of the coast, there are countless areas of beautiful natural beauty. Plus, the hot, sunny climate lends itself to sunbathing and outdoor activities. There are lots of spots for sightseeing too, such as the pretty fishing villages dotted along both coasts, and legendary historic towns like Tripoli. History buffs will love to discover the ancient artefacts and buildings of the area that date back to ancient Greece, with many still in amazing condition. The regional cuisine is a must-try too, thanks to the tasty seafood and fresh olive oil that is made in the olive groves of the Peloponnese.
