24-hour In-Room Dining

Just two hours outside of Athens, this historic seaport town offers a quaint, island-like feel while still being on the mainland. Situated on the northern end of the Argolic Gulf, most of the old town is on a peninsula that juts into the gulf. The town offers beaching, shopping, dining, and so much more, and you’ll feel the warmth of the people who live there everywhere you go. In Nauplion, we’ve designed some incredible shore excursions for you to choose from. Set off on our Ancient Mycenae excursion that will transport you back in time as you explore the ruins of Mycenae—a UNESCO World Heritage site. Or journey to the Turkish and Venetian fortification, the Palamidi Fortess, and marvel at breathtaking, panoramic views of Nauplion and the sea beyond.

Boutari Wineries

Make a reservation well in advance to tour Boutari Wineries, known for its sprawling vineyards and modern glass-walled facility. After walking through the estate, head to the tasting room to sample Cretan wines such as Cava Boutari and Fantaxometocho—both reds—and snack on Cretan plates such as ntakos, bread with tomato, feta, and olive oil.
