Argolide - Area guide
Nafplio is a city located in the eastern Peloponnese, between the Argolic and Saronic gulfs.
From 1828 to 1833, Nafplio was the new capital of Greece. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Greece, with distinctive Venetian buildings such as the Akronafplia and the fort on Bourtzi Island off the coast.
The ancient city of Argos is located in the Peloponnese region of Greece, and was once an important centre of the Mycenaean civilisation. The archaeological site of Mycenae continues to attract millions of tourists from around the world.
Epidaurus is also notable for its archaeological sites, including the sanctuary of Asclepius with its ancient theatre, as well as the most beautiful and best preserved theatre of antiquity. The Epidaurus Festival is one of the oldest theatre festivals in Greece, which takes place in this region.
Ermioni, a relaxing destination for Athenians and Peloponnese residents, is located on the Argolis coast and is connected to the port of Piraeus by a suspension bridge.
Another favourite destination is Porto Heli, at the western end of the island, with its beautiful pine beaches and natural harbour which is particularly attractive to boat owners. Agios Aimilianos and Costa, which are directly connected to Spetses, are particularly popular with high-end residents during the summer.
