What people are saying about Nafplio
It was a really a nice trip to end my stay in Athens (beg. Dec). The shuttle bus was on time and our guide (Katerina) explained a bit of the history of the places we were going to visit. Our first mini stop was at the Corinth Canal. After that we made our way to the archaeological site of Mycenae. It was a rainy and windy day. We had some time (about 2 hours) to walk around the citadel by ourselves. You can easily walk around and there are some explanations at every point. Finally you will end up at the museum, which gives more information on the Mycenaean civilisation, the excavations and artefacts found. After the museum we drove to the treasury of Atreus and had a quick glimpse at the tomb of Agamemnon. After that we had more than an hour drive to Nafplio to have a quick lunch. Even though we did not have plenty of time we saw Napflio near the top next to the castle. Then we drove another 45 min to Epidaurus and had only an hour to see the theatre and the museum.
Well what a wonderful adventure the days excursion became. The pickup from the metro was so, so easy; and saved hours in Athens traffic. I was the only adventurer, and Alex the driver, and Garyfallo the archeologist guid were mine for the day, and what an adventure it was. Felt as if I’d known them all my life. Philosophical discussions on the development of religion, insights into Hellenic society, and staggeringly beautiful scenery, sites and tales of ancientGreece, and contemporary Afplio, the day flew. A stop at the Corinth canal and coffee, then into Mycaeni, which I had to stand in awe of in its monolithic structure, size and complexity. Afplio for lunch at a local inn, what a warm welcome, and finally a visit to Epidaurus. The beautiful threatens (Seats 14,000) was an obvious draw, but so to was the stadium, temples and the huge complex established as a hospital by the founder of modern medicine, Epidaurus himself. The day was perfect.
Great day tour out of Athens. Mycenae and Epidaurus are beautiful archeological sites, but Nafplio is surely the star attraction. Bill was punctual, very friendly and very agreeable to do a guided walk of Nafplio when we were there. The old town is a great contrast to busy Athens. The small size of the group also meant that it felt almost like a personal tour. It would have been better if Bill could show us around inside Mycenae and Epidaurus, but we still had an excellent trip.
I was very happy with the tour. Our guides were some of the nicest people I have met in all of Greece, and knowledgeable, too. The tour was well organized and structured; we had enough time at the sights and got enough information about the things we saw. The journey was comfortable in our minivan and the beautiful places we visited made for a very interesting day!
Very Interesting places. . Learned a lot on Greek past. Our guide BIll was VERY helpful. Told us many interesting myth Greek stories and gave us a lot of interesting information of every place in the way. He also stopped the car for us in interesting places in the way with amazing photo spots !
