My wife and I have several days off from work on the first week of April and we looking for a new destination. We have a 5 month old baby and for that reason we do are not doing to several eastern European cities we want to visit as we afraid it will be to cold for the baby.
A Cypriot friend of mine recommended me about Nafplio and we intending to come especially from Israel for 3-4 days stay.I have several questions if you don't mind:
1. Is the first week of April is nice time to visit? The weather is nice and everything at the old city is open?
2. Do you think we will have difficulties to travel with a baby at the old city as there are many stairs, etc?
3. The train from Athens is working? What is the best way to get there?
4. We are not looking for lying on the beach but to hang around in a city or a small town, enjoy city landscape and restaurants. Do you believe it is a good destination for us? Is it sounds reasonable to travel from Israel for 3 nights in Nafplio?
any suggestions - consider for travel to the sights near nafplio - Mycenae and Epidavoros
Is this program feasible?
1. Train/Bus from Athens. Explore city.
2. Taxi/Bus to Myceane and Tiryns (a day in the Bronze Age)
3. Taxi/Bus to Epidaurus, and then return to Athens
That's 3 days, 2 nights.

Hello, I was in Nafplio 3 weeks ago, and bought some earrings. I lost one, and would like to buy it again. The earrings looked like a red poppy, with 4 black stems. They also had rings in the same way, and in the entrance door were some plates on which were written things like: want breakfast in bed? sleep in kitchen and other funny things. Does someone know this shop? Thank you for answering

How much would it cost to take a taxi from Nafplio to Athens?
My wife and I (age 29) will be making a day trip (with a rental car) from Athens to Nafplio and are looking for recomendations on a nice hotel. Nothing fancy but in a nice area close to restaurants/shops and sites and with parking for the rental car (70-110 Euro).
Also any recomendations on things to see given the short time period or good restaurants. We are hoping to visit Bourtzi, Palamidi fortress, mycenae and epidavros on our trip to the area as well.
Thanks for all your help.
Within my itinerary, I included Nafplio because I'd like to see the town and also then visit Epidaurus and Mycenae. I wouldn't want to rent a car to move around, I was looking for the option of moving with buses instead. Are there buses that go to the archaeological sites of Epidaurus and Mycenae? could you please give me some tips regarding this?
Thank you so much!!
I'll be flying from Mytilene Island to Athens at the end of August and would like to travel to Nafplio to spend one or two nights there. I know there are buses from Athens but are there any trains departing from the airport to avoid having to go to the bus station?
My husband and I are about to leave for Greece, staying most of the trip in Nafplio and traveling the surrounding area and also in Hydra and some in Athens. Any advice on what to see, eat, and do while in that area??? Yes we will rent a car in Nafplio!!
need some help in finding a guide to show our family around Nafplion, Mycenea and Epidaurus.
We are arriving in August (I know, the heat) on board a cruise.
Our time is limited 0700-1300 - but our children LOVE Greek mythology and we want to make the most of our visit.
Cruise trips spend too much time at the shops - not enough time at the sites.
family of 4 - 2 adults/2 kids
Should we just hire a local taxi - but that's full of risks as well -- bit Iffy, huh
many many thanks
Is there any direct bus from Napflion to Piraeus?

We are planning a Turkey-Greece tour in the near future. Due to limited time (2 weeks), we plan to see Athens, Nafplio, Delphi and Meteora in 3 days. Is it feasible? What is the best route to see Nafplio, Delphi and Meteora? I'm thinking of landing in Athens in the morning, spending the night. On 2nd day driving Delphi then Meteora overnight, the 3rd day drive to Nafplio.

Hello to All -
My wife and I will be coming to the Nafplio area in late June by bus from Athens with nothing but a couple of backpacks and a tent. We are looking for a campsite that is close to Nafplio. Doesn't have to be big or anything special, just a place to set down our tent and sleep. We are planning on moving around a lot during the day and not being so much at the campground. I have read through some of the posts and see that Triton II has been recommended and a campground called Lefkas which I have been unable to locate. I was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions, and how easy it is to get from these campsites to Nafplio and other surrounding areas without a car. Thank you!!
would any one know what time the first bus starts from nafplion to athens because we have to be at athens airport for 10am hope you can help many thanks
Hello, my name is Aliki. There used to be a nice restaurant in Kefalari of Argos. As you look at the cave and church, it was the one on the left. It was built among huge trees and had tables up front. Doe anyone know it's name and phone number? I'de appreciate your help.
We are arriving by air in Athens and wish to travel first to Nafplio and then on to Kalamata and finally back to Athens over the course of two weeks. Is it possible to make this trip by bus? If so, can anyone give advice on routes, schedules, cost etc. Would a rental car be a better option even if we will not use it for the week we are in Kalamata as we will be sailing that week? Any advice appreciated.
My husband and I cannot decide what to do for transportation. We are limited with funds but what to see everything. We fly into Athens and are traveling to Hydra, back to Athens then to Nafplio. Should we rent a car? Is there enough public transportation in Athens, Hydra, and Nafplio to see everything without needing a car? What would someone recomend?
At the end of March we will be traveling from Hyrda to Nafplio and then from Nafplio to Athens Airport.
What is the best way to travel via public transportation ( train, bus, boat)?
If public transportation is out of the question, what are the alternatives?
Are there shared taxis?
Thanks very much.
We will be visiting the area from April 1-11 and have just learned that the Greek holiday runs the week before and after Easter. Question is: in light of the Greek people vacationing in the area during this time, should we pre-book all of our stays throughout the Pelopponese? Other than pre-booking our Nafplio stay, we were going to make last minute bookings. I want to spend time in Monemvasia but have been informed that the minimum booking at Hotel Malvasia is 4 nights during Easter break. If we do stay there that long, what can we take in for day trips. Thank you, Carol
Hello Wise Ones,
Thank you for your assistance. May I now present my itinerary for your opinions?
April 1 - Athens to Nafplio - by bus
April 1,2,3,4 - 3 days/4 nights in Nafplio (hotel booked) - touring by bus
April 5 - Rent Car in Nafplio - drive coast to Monemvasia, spend 1 night
April 6 - Explore Monemvasia and Dirou Caves, drive north to Mystras, spend 1 night
April 7 - Drive east to Koroni, Methoni and Pylos, spend 1 or 2 nights
Drive North to Stemnitsa, Dimitsana, spend 1 or 2 nights
I'm thinking of staying somewhere closer to AThens the last night so our drive isn't long/stressful. Any ideas?
April 11th - Drive to Athens Airport, drop off rental car there. Flight leaves Athens at 1:30 pm, Sunday
I didn't plan on booking accommodations anywhere 'til we get there (other than Nafplio) using a mobile phone.
There will be 2 drivers to help with that task. Is this itinerary overdoing it?
I appreciate all advice. Sincerely, Carol
From the lady who asked the question about taxi/bus travel from athens airport to Nafplio....she actually found the answer by applying herself to the existing wealth of information online. Who knew?
