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.
