This action-packed day trip to Epidaurus and Mycenae is the perfect choice for travelers interested in historic sites, and natural beauty. Avoid the hassle of organizing car rental, and let someone else do the driving instead. Travel in an air-conditioned coach along the scenic Saronic Gulf coast, explore the ancient ruins of Mycenae on foot, visit the pretty town of Nauplia, and see the ancient theater of Epidaurus.

I hiked up the stairs to the castle which was a pretty good workout, and was pleasantly surprised with the castle. There was a lot of spaces to see, and it felt nice that it wasn't overly regulated in that you were fairly free to roam around as you wanted without a bunch of signs or gates etc. The view over Nafplio and the sea was beautiful.

Had a really wonderful visit until we returned to car to find our car had been broken into and a bag stolen. This happened to 6 other cars and the police told us it has happened before over the summer. We were parked on the street in a line of cars down the hill from the castle. Each car had their back window broken so please don’t leave valuables in the car here. Don’t let it put you off though. Castle is on a much larger site than I expected with beautiful views of Nafplio. Enjoyed by all the family (13 yr old and 10 yr old included).

Nice spot, with a view on the city. The fortress is beautiful and well conserved. Not a lot of explanations though, but a nice walk around.

Somewhere that you should definitely visit if you are staying in or visiting Nafplio. The castle sits high above the town and there are tremendous views of the whole area from it's grounds. The ruins are quite extensive so there is a lot to explore. It's possible to walk up to the castle from the town or it's an easy drive up with parking outside.

I have walked up the steps on the back side several times , it’s pretty easy if you are in just average shape and well worth it - the views are incredible and the ruins are very interesting . Worth the 4e admission. The castle is beautiful both day and especially lit up at nite .
