An elegant souvenir shop at Gythio.
Visit it even if you don't plan to buy anything. It is really interesting and beautiful.
I am a person who very scarcely buy souvenirs, but this shop made me want to take a video of everything in there. Everything is so beautifully placed on the shelves, with such good taste, that you will surely leave with something.
What to buy: A great variety of interesting things, local art, pottery, jewels, ....just everything for all tastes!
The Traditional shop called "Sminourgia" is a nice local shop that sells only local products in the village of Vitina. Visit it if you come here.

A variety of all kinds of goods we usually want to buy.
What to buy: Buy honey, home-made pastry, home-made desserts, wine, liqueur, even biological cosmetics.
What to buy: There are a few small towns in Laconia but probably the most picturesque with shops for all your essentials is Githion. An attractive harbour town with a bustling main square. After your shopping in the small supermarkets , have a drink at one of the cafes around the square.

Buy the famous "Malvasian wine" - a dessert wine from this place.
