"Argolis, Peloponnese" Prefecture of Argolida by Andrew_W_K

As I say elsewhere on my travel pages one of my favourites towns. Stunningly pretty with two Venetian castles (one in the bay and one overlooking the town) and the site of the first capital of Greece in their war of independence against the Turks. Today Nafplio is rather a sleepy little town where you can relax with a drink in Syntagma square and watch the world go by. I can't really say there is anything I found about the town that I didn't like except for a slightly annoyed motorist that sounded his horn at me for a transgression I'm still unaware of.
I must include Porto Heli as that's where my friend Leonidis has a house. The town itself is no great shakes and is mainly the main port for ferries to Athens. On the outskirts of town there are vast car parks where people leave their vehicles to travel to Spetses which is traffic free and only a short hop from the mailand. If you know where to go around Porto Heli (and my friend Leo does) then its possible to find a picture postcard beach where you are the only visitor and long may it continue.
Not the big amphitheatre where evryone goes but the small village a few km away where stupid tourists like me go by mistake. What a mistake though, its a pretty little village surrounded by orange groves and they even have a smaller version of the amphitheatre of the same name.
