Things to do, Shopping
There are some shops with touristy stuff in Stoupa, Agios Nikolaos and Kardamyli.
It is also nice to visit the old town center in Kalamata.
This is best done in the morning since most shops close around 14.00.
Here you will find shops that sell herbs, freshly ground coffee and Orthodox church interiors.
There is a covered market place close to the central bus station.
Along the bustling sea front you will find plenty of bars and restaurants.
Instead of doing their evening stroll on foot a lot of young people do it by car, slowing down where all the people are sitting and speeding up where there are no terraces....only to turn straight back again at the little roundabout at Hotel Filoxenia!
While you're there you can pay a visit to the Archaeological Museum.
You will find it in the Old Municipal Market at the square on Benakis & Agiou Ioannou at Kalamata.
