Day trips with small airplanes from Athens to Kythera

Explore the secluded paradise island of Kythera on a private day trip from Athens and you definitely won’t regret it!

Lying at the southeastern tip of the Peloponnese peninsula, Kythera (or Kithira or Kythira) typically belongs to the complex of the Ionian islands, although it is located quite far from them. The island offers a remarkable natural beauty and sightseeing attractions, along with wondrous beaches…in brief some of the best places to visit in Greece. Rivers, caves, gorges and waterfalls will make you hardly believe you are on an island! Yet, the island’s stunning white sandy beaches, smaller bays reminding you the Cycladic architecture, the picturesque villages whose architecture is strongly influenced by the Venetians (Kythera island was occupied by the Venetians in the Medieval ages) offer a fresh,  relaxing island atmosphere that will undoubtedly captivate you! Also known as “the island of contrasts”, Kythira has been home to hosts of peoples and civilizations: from the Neolithic Age to the Minoan times (20th century AC) and to the Mycenaeans, the Dorians and the Spartans, still in the ancient times; from the Byzantine middle ages to the Venetian rule; from the Ottoman to the English occupation; from the State of the Ionian Islands to the modern Greek State which it joined in 1864. The ancient myth that referred the island as Aphrodite’s birthplace has been the inspiration for the paintings of celebrated artists such as Sandro Botticelli and Jean-Antoine Watteau.

What makes the island remaining still out of the tourist map and maintaining its originality and peacefulness is the difficulty in getting there. Visitors can either use the local commercial flights to reach the island, although availability is scarce or travel by boat either from Piraeus or from the port of Neapoli, located at the tip of the Peloponnese peninsula.
