Start off early, and head to Nafplio, Greece’s first modern capital. Start with a visit at the Palamidi fortress, climb up the 999 steps to enjoy all-encompassing views over the city and the Gulf. After this, head back to the city center which, you would have guessed is ideal for an exploration tour on your own. Meander the small streets and admire the neoclassical houses and their blooming balconies. Nafplio is a charming, picturesque town where you should focus on getting lost because you will surely find your way back.
Delphi, known in ancient times as the navel of the world. First pass by Castalia Spring, visit at the archaeological site and view the monument of the Argive Kings, the treasury of the Athenians, the Athenian Stoa, the Polygonal Wall, the monument of Platea and the Temple of Apollo famous for its oracle and Delphi museum, with it’s spectacular exhibits include the frieze of the Treasury of the Sifnians, the Naxian Sphinx, the Statue of Antinoos the metopes of the Athenian treasury, the famous bronze Charioteer.
Sounio – Temple of Poseidon
A drive to Sounio is my favourite getaway from the city. You will enjoy the seaside route and the breathtaking views from the Temple of Poseidon. On your way back, you can stop at one of the nearby seafront taverns to sample fresh fish accompanied by a glass of ouzo.
