The Best Drive in Greece?

If you believe in taking the scenic route, you'll have a tough time finding a better one than this. The road from Sparti to Kalamata snakes along beneath limestone peaks, then climbs into the cool highlands, which offer beautiful vistas, before switchbacking down to olive-growing country. We were driving from Monemvasia to Olympia, which was going to be a pretty long day, but we decided to take this way instead of the highway and we didn't regret it for a second. Any time it added to our trip was more than made up for by the beauty of the drive.
