The ancient city of Argos factors heavily into Greek mythology, but has stayed relevant to the modern age. Tourists come to view ancient architecture as well as to make this a base when visiting the port city of Nafplion.
The main tourist attraction of Argos are ruins that date back centuries or, in some cases, millennia. Car hire in Argos is essential for getting out of town and visiting Greek ruins, many of which are in the immediate countryside and cannot be visited on foot. Public transportation is available but lacks the freedom afforded with car hire.
With cheap car hire in Argos you can also connect quickly to Nafplion, the ancient port with its own history. Nearby Epidaurus boasts an amazing Greek amphitheatre with exceptional acoustics, and it even hosts plays during the summer months.
Argos is accessed by three major thoroughfares. Argous-Nafpliou approaches from Nafplion in the southeast; Tripoleos sweeps in from Kiveri to the south; and Argous-Komvou Stemas from the north. The city of Sparta lies about 70 miles to the south and can be reached with car rental in Argos in under 2 hours.
The railway station is in the southeast quarter of town where the road to Nafplion enters the metropolitan area. The terminal sits at the intersection of Eikostis Pemptis Maritou and Filellinon.
