Day Trip to Corinth Canal and Nafplion

Embark on a scenic journey from Athens, tracing the coastline towards the Corinth Canal. Pause for picturesque moments and stroll across the historic bridge connecting the mainland. Continuing our road trip, we reach Nafplio, a city steeped in history, named after Poseidon’s son, Nafplius.

Discover Nafplio’s allure, renowned for the “Bourtzi” fortress on a port islet, and the imposing Venetian fortress, “Palamidi.” The city’s architectural tapestry reflects influences from various conquerors throughout the years.

Upon arrival, explore the Palamidi Fortress, constructed by the Venetians in 1687 after a fierce battle with the Ottomans. Used as a prison post-Greek Revolution, it housed figures like Theodore Kolokotronis.

Next, embark on a boat ride to the “floating” Fortress Bourtzi, erected by the Venetians in 1473. Initially a fortress and later a residence for executioners, it evolved into a hotel from 1930 to 1970.

Conclude your adventure by wandering the enchanting old city of Nafplio. Navigate narrow paths filled with enticing local spots for dining, shopping, and enjoying coffee or ice cream. By the end of this tour, one thing is certain – you’ll be captivated by the charm of this small, beautiful city. Enjoy with us the Corinth and Nafplion Tour.
