Greek Treat: Nafplio by Train

Many call Nafplio “the most charming city in Greece”— and for good reason. The Peloponnesian city boasts noticeable Venetian influences, recently renovated pedestrian streets, three formidable fortresses, and a charming seaside location. Together, these features create a city atmosphere unlike any other in Greece.

There are three main ways to get to Nafplio from Athens and most other parts of Greece: on a tour bus, in a rental car, and by train. We recommend the third option. From Athens, a round-trip ticket comes in under €10.

Besides being the least expensive and most environmentally-friendly travel option between Athens and Nafplio, the train offers a scenic, peaceful ride, not to mention requisite Grade A eavesdropping and people-watching opportunities.

About the author

In order to keep a promise she and her brother had made to their grandmother (and to simultaneously fulfill one of her own dreams) Kaymaria left her beloved hometown of Oakland, California and headed to Athens in time for the 2004 Olympics. Today, she continues to work and play in the Greek capital, where you may find her writing atop Lykavittos, road-tripping with overseas guests, enjoying Athens cafés with friends, dancing to Greek hip-hop music, or reading Greek subtitles in an outdoor cinema. The daughter of two life-long educators and enthusiastic travelers, Kaymaria has explored North America, Mexico, and Europe. It was not until she spent a year as an exchange student at The University of York in England, however, that she discovered that she does not actually speak English.
