Nafplion Shore Excursion - This 2.5 hour your walking tour visits the sites of Nafplion, one of Greece's most romantic and beautiful towns. You learn about Greece traditions and then end your tour with a sampling of small appetizers and the favorite spirit of the Greeks, Ouzo.

After meeting your private guide at the pier, your walking tour begins as you marvel at the beautiful neoclassical buildings lining the port. The narrow streets of the old town are paved with marble and filled with elegant Venetian houses and gracious mansions. The town is dominated by the towering Palamidi Fortress above.

Your first stop is the Kapodistriou Square and Park which is dedicated to the memory of the first Governor of Greece. In the park is a statue of Kolokotronis, known as the Grand Old Man of the Morea, being the leader of the Greeks during the War of Independence. It was him who besieged the Turkish occupied Palamidi Citadel for 15 months before it was finally surrendered back. On the square you also see the current Town Hall building which was originally the very first High School in Greece.

Continuing through the back streets, not normally meant for tourists, you come upon the old Catholic Church and the 1702 Church of Agios Spyidon. The "worry beads" you see everywhere in Greece have a museum of their own in Nafplion and you will visit the Museum of Komboloi to learn of their origin.

Next you proceed through the popular Syntagma Square (Constitution Square) to visit the spectacular display of folk costumes and traditional textile-producing techniques at the Popular Art Museum, winner of the 1981 European Museum of the year.

After learning the ways of Greeks in the past you move on to Karonis Wine Shop where you will enjoy current Greek life. Mr. Karonis is regarded as a specialist on Greek wines and has written a number of books on the various wines of Greece. Today, however, in the true Greek style, you will sample a variety of mezes (small appetizers) and the favorite spirit of the Greeks, Ouzo.

After your walking tour the guide will walk with you back to the pier.
