We visited the islet of Kranae with hopes of seeing both the Gythio Lighthouse and the Tower of Tzanetakis. Unfortunately both were closed so we got outside views only. That said, Kranae is lovely with nice grounds, some oceanfront access and great potential for development.

Excellent spot, with a beautiful small castle, which is mostly closed, but you can wander around, take pictures, sit in the shade and have a great view of Gytheio.

Even though it is supposed to be a museum, it is closed and deserted. There is no sign or information to that effect however, anywhere. What a pity, it is beautiful historical monument!

It was a nice walk there but unfortunately the museum was closed. I suggest if you want to take a tour there to contact them first

Is it just bad luck? 4 visits over 14 years and each time it wa closed during working hours. At least you have the consolation of seeing the Tower itself from outside and it is impressive. You can also walk 5 minutes up the lane...More

If in Gythio, you really can't miss the Tower of Tzanetakis. It is a very relaxed and tranquil spot.

A nice tower on the island of Kranae (Gythio). Take your time to wander around and enjoy the tranquillity of the place
