The drive by bus from Sparta to the city of Kalamata takes you through the amazing Langada Pass of the
  Taygetos Mountains - one of the best bus rides in Greece. Another ride takes you to the pretty little town of Pylos,
situated on the Bay of Navarino, west coast of the Peloponnese, scene of the naval Battle of Navarino in 1827.
Here, it's another short trip to the site of the Minoan palace of King Nestor, one of the protagonists at Troy.
