Athens, Nafplio and Kalamata

We are thinking of taking a trip for 11 or 12 nights. We would start with 3 days in Athens and then 4 days in Nafplio and 4 days in Kalamata. Depending on the flight time we would spend spend our last night in Athens too.

We would prefer not to rent a car. Is public transport okay between these places? We would want to do some days of sightseeing, other days just relax at the beach, going for drinks and nice meals. Would these places suit us?

Thanks!

There are coaches between Athens and Nafplio nearly every hour. There are two buses a day from Nafpilio to Tripoli where you can pick up the numerous Athens to Kalamata buses.

The www.ktel-argolidas.gr website will give you times for the Athens/Nafplio/Tripoli buses.

Is it possible to take a bus from Athens to Kalamata directly or do we have to change busses an Nafplio or Tripoli?

Eurail shows a train route between all of these places.

Eurail is about ten years out of date. These routes were discontinued years ago. The only trains which currently run in the Peloponnese are the airport train which terminates in Kiato and the cog rail between Diakofto and Kalamata.

If you want to get around the Peloponnese by public transport, you have to use buses or taxis.

"We would want to do some days of sightseeing, other days just relax at the beach, going for drinks and nice meals. Would these places suit us?"

Can't answer for Kalamata, but Nafplio is perfect for this. There is a town beach, and two bigger beaches (Karathona and Tolo) that can easily be reached by bus: visitnafplio.com/visitnafplio.com/Beaches.ht…

There are a lot of places to do sightseeing in Nafplio, like the old town itself, the three castles Burtzi, Palamidi and Acronafplia, several museums etc: visitnafplio.com/visitnafplio.com/Nafplio/Na…

There are many sights in Argolis county, Tirintha/Tyrins, Mykene and Epidavros can be reached by bus.

And Nafplio has plenty of excellent places to eat and drink, here are just a few: visitnafplio.com/visitnafplio.com/Nafplio/En…
