Driving from Delphi-- how far south in Peloponnese 1 day?

Hi, Starting from Delphi, and how far south is reasonable to reach by car in the Peloponnese? I would like to drive to Monemvasia, then to Nafplio. However all is subject to change, and I would greatly appreciate your suggestions! I have 4 days, hoping to end with a show at the Epivaros Theater on the 4th night.

Monemvasia looks a bit out of the way, but beautiful. Thanks!

You should allow a minimum 6 hours to drive from Delphi to Monemvasia and at least 3 1/2 from Monemvasia to Nafplio. That's quite a chunk of your 4 days.

When on the Pelopeonnese you should visit Olympia, and I would say Delphi, via Patras, to Olympia is nice day trip.

Hi,

If you do visit Olympia you could travel on to Monemvasia via Krestana, Andritsena, Megalopolis and Tripolis. If you have the time and take this route the Temple of Vassae is worth a visit. It is close to Andritsena.

Great feedback! Thank you all so much!! I'm hearing Delphi to Olympia via Patras is a good one day trip. Where would be a good night to spend in between Olympia and Nafplio for the next night?

It's sounding like Monemvasia is a long drive and cuts into the time?

Hi,

There is accommodation available in Andritsena, Megalopolis and Tripolis. Out of the three my choice would be Andritsena:

And, on the way you could stop off and visit the ancient theatre just outside Megalopolis, not the most exciting sites to visit but worth the while if you are driving through the area.
