Located on the southern side of Peloponnese, Kythira is a secluded island with relaxing atmosphere. Although Kythira island is considered part of the Ionian Sea, it is located far from the other Ionian islands. After a long time of Venetian occupation in the Medieval ages, this island has a vivid Venetian architecture, especially in Chora, the capital town. On a hill above Chora, there is a strong castle with breathtaking view to the Aegean Sea. Kapsali, Agia Pelagia, Avlemonas and Diakofti are the most tourist places on Kythira Greece, while a drive around the island will bring visitors to wonderful beaches, lovely monasteries and even ghost villages, like the abandoned town of Paleochora.
