Nafplio, Greece - Nafplio, Home of Dimitri 1
Nafplio, a seaside town with a population of 12,000, is located only 2 hours south of Athens on the Peloponnesian Peninsula. Many consider it Greece’s prettiest town. Nestled on a quiet bay, Nafplio makes a perfect base for exploring some of the most historic and scenic sections of Greece.
Nafplio itself has many restaurants and cafés, a wide variety of shops, several food stores including a convenient supermarket, an Internet café, and ATMs. It also has a prize-winning museum of Peloponnesian folk art and an archaeological museum. The Palamidi, a huge eighteenth-century fortress built by the Venetians, towers over the town and offers incredible views of the town, bay, and surroundings. Another fortress, a former prison, sits on an island in the bay just a few minutes by boat from Nafplio’s harbor.
Nearby daytrips from Nafplio include ancient ruins at Mycenae, Epidaurus, Tiryns, and Corinth. Longer excursions from Nafplio include Olympia, Mystras, Monemvasia, the island of Hydra, and even Athens.
Making Nafplio your home base creates a wonderful daily dilemma: to relax on a Nafplio beach or in a seaside café or to explore fascinating sites further afield.
Customer comments about Dimitri 1, Nafplio, Greece - Nafplio
"The apartment was well located for walking around Nafplio. Overlooking the church square was especially wonderful due to the Easter weekend activities. We got a kick out of managing life in an older building (e.g., having to turn the water heater on and off so we wouldn't overload the power circuits)." Janet and Thomas Bratton
"Apt. was in a perfect location for strolling and locating yet another taverna for dinner." Susan Bennett

"Excellent facility overall....proximity to everything." Richard Franson
"We really enjoyed the apartment and felt it was extremely well situated though noisy...more so because it was Holy Week and the church bells were on overtime! We arrived in Greece early and spent the preceding 5 days in Rhodes where we ate all our meals out. We were so happy to have a chance for 'home cooking'! We shopped at the Wednesday and Saturday markets, bought a Greek cookbook and had fun experimenting… even cooked squid 2 times... The washing machine was great and we found that our clothes dried even if hung outside overnight! When we went on day trips, we felt like we were coming home at the end of day." Betty, David and Peter Gross
"I can't think of a better place to be." Temple Fawech
"Site is central and, because of its proximity to the church, is the center of action. Balcony is great for people watching." - Diana Draheim
"Great location. Good amenities. Comfortable and safe." Dean Schloyer
"Location was perfect, central and we could walk everywhere. Just on the edge of the more touristy area. We were able to cook, sit in the porch and watch the world go by and the air condition worked great." Mark Neuhaus

An Explanation of the Ratings: The first column of figures is the highest score possible in each category. The column on the far right is the score for this particular apartment in this category. For this set of ratings, we have asked every Untour staff person who has seen the apartment to rate the individual features. Many of these staff people have been in a position to hear reports (good and bad) from customers over the years, so they offer a particularly well-informed perspective. Nevertheless, customer ratings will be included in the overall ratings as soon as possible.
