Subjects : Landscape, especially sea landscape; nature in general (macro naturalistic). I have no news about underwater photography but there are several caves also underwater that can offer different ideas. Speaking of caves, of particular value is the one at the rock of Avgo, located off Kapsali, easily accessible by boats that organize noisy trips. Kithira, Kythira or, if you prefer its Venetian name, Kythira, belongs to the Ionian islands but has the characters of the Cyclades, with the Chora with white and blue houses, decorated with beautiful blooms of bougainvillea, are perched on the slopes of a hill crowned by a Venetian castle of the thirteenth century. The village is situated in a panoramic position on the Gulf of Kapsali with the vestiges of an ancient Venetian stronghold. The island is not heavily exploited from a tourist point of view, except for coastal resorts, and therefore preserves especially inland villages with the characteristic appearance of past years, providing interesting photographic ideas. Beautiful churches are always very simple and generally devoid of fine decorations but often located in positions with spectacular sea views that make them particularly suggestive.

Recommended equipment : Everything is fine, it depends on what kind of subject you want to shoot. If you decide to go in spring or autumn a macro is strongly recommended, for all other situations a wide angle is sufficient and if you want to travel light a zoom all-rounder.

Best months : Personally I have always been there in summer, in this period the sun can be unbearable even if the sea breezes make the temperatures warm but pleasant. Those who have gone there in other periods, report a pleasant climate, never cold. In spring and autumn the hinterland is lush and colorful with a great variety of colors.

How to get there : From Athens with a comfortable domestic flight of about 50 '. From Piraeus by ferry, but be careful because sometimes the service is suspended. From Athens by car and then from Neapoli, south of the Peloponnese, by ferry.

Visits : At the Chora there is an archaeological museum for a fee, whose opening hours I do not know. The churches are free admission but are generally open during ceremonies and / or functions.
