The town of Nafplio is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. It is a seaport town in the Peloponnese, which has expanded up the hillsides at the northern end of the Argolic Gulf. This is an ideal destination for people who love islands but don't like boats.
Just a two-hour drive from Athens, the former capital is one of the most beautiful towns in Greece. With two mountains crowned by medieval fortresses that overlook the town, it is a great place to visit and hiring a car is an ideal way to see the sights.
Nafplio is full of restaurants, shops, cafes and hotels. No matter what type of holiday you are looking for or how much money you are looking to spend, this town has it all. Book car hire in Nafplio for the freedom to drive round and take in all of the old buildings or the numerous ancient sites in the area.
The best time to see the city is first thing in the morning, get up early and take a drive around the winding scenic roads. You will get a real sense of being one of the locals as they greet you whilst setting up for the day. It's also a nice place to go in the early evening, especially during the summer months when it has the feeling of a county fair.
Getting around Nafplio is easy. Buses operate throughout the town and to and from Athens and Salonica, stopping at certain destinations along the way. Bus fees are cheaper than taxis and drive a lot slower.

Collect and drop-off the vehicle at the airport to save having to pay for airport transfers.
There is also a small port and train station at the port in Nafpoli, for travellers not wishing to hire a car abroad. Trains operate to Athens stopping along the way.
