Athens to Corfu

by Road Crazy »

Thank you so much for coming back with your report!  It sounds like the coastal road south from Nafplio is a lovely drive, so I will put it on my agenda.  My plan on the next trip (a few years off yet) is to go roughly around the perimeter of the Peloponnese.  I know I'm supposed to want to go to Mystras, but for some reason it doesn't really appeal to me.  I of course may well change my mind before it's time to go.  It sounds like Kyparissi was great.  It looks like you didn't make it to Monemvasia?

No, we opted out of Monemvasia, only because time was short, and we don't like to run in and run out, so to speak.  I knew nothing about it while planning the trip, but learned plenty about it later.  I like your idea of the trip around the perimeter; we want to spend more time on the Peloponnese now that we have a taste of it.  I liked your comment earlier about the tour busses in the mountains; I think the route you talked about from Napflio to Olympia might have been the one we took in reverse, and I was commenting to my wife that this is almost more of a motorcycle road, when we can across three tour busses in one of the towns, and they had actually figured out a way to turn around!

Monemvasia is definitely on our return trip plans now, and we found that a red wine from there was incredible...I didn't think of the Greeks as having good wine, but we had some wonderful wines from there!

We had a trip to Greece this summer. We landed in Athens, had a road trip  to Kalamata and then went by  ferry to Crete. The only one advice that I wanted to give you is to book all transport in advance. You'll save both your money and time.

MaryShe is promoting this 24 rental company in numerous threads. Is this a good thing?

Hi Jack,

After reading carefully all the previous posts here, I had another idea that I believe your wife would be interested.
What about to charter a yacht (skipperd) in the following itinerary:

Athens - Poros - Hydra - Spetses - Nafplio (one way).
The Saronic islands waters are very calm and appropriate for not experienced tourists and Hydra island is awesome!

May is considered as low season and the prices are very low ath that time!

I can answer any question you may have about Greece!

nodas, the OP has been and returned from his trip some time ago, and this is his trip report, not a question.  In any event, he was interested in Corfu, not the Saronic islands.  Are you just shilling for Kavas?

Oops! I lost the 2nd page - I am sorry.
I've read his positive expressions of this trip and I am glad for this. They liked even our wine, that's great :-)
Road crazy, you travel a lot, I'll be glad to assist you or anyone else planning a trip to Greece.
