What people are saying about Nafplio

Great experience to explore the city

My relatives from Mexico come to explore Greece for one month so i went with them. One of our destination was Nafplio. Went i arrived at the starting point of the tour i was amazed by the style of the bus. It was cool. The tour took us around the city and in the top of the mountain where the you can visit the castel. It was a nice experience. Also cheap so a must to do if you want to meet the city.

The bus trip is unexceptional other from the fact it allows easy access to the Palamadi fortress and lion sculpture which are a 30euro taxi with minimal waiting time or steep climb and literally hundreds of steps (fortress) out of the way (lion)

The best way to get around the town and not spend a fortune. Definitely worth it for transportation up to the fortress. No way is this lady climbing 90+ stairs!

Great day out with the family to the Palamidi

George was our driver and was wonderful. Just pack hats and sunscreen and loads of water to stay hydrated

Very friendly guide. Palamidi is definitely worth it.
