Love and Beauty
Skirting the most intense of the Mani we found ourselves in the Port of Gythio where one of western history's most famous love affairs of all time began. It was here that Paris and Helen first cultivated their tryst that eventually launched history into the epic Trojan War. Gentle and pretty Gythio must have been a more romantic place in it's day, but it is also a good jumping of point for Kythyria legendary birthplace of Aphrodite goddess of love and beauty.
