The most beautiful little city in Greece has to be Nafplion and Filyra Pension is an excellent, budget-friendly place to stay. Most of the accommodations in this lovely town of older buildings are pensions (as opposed to hotels) and you will see why as soon as you get there – the beautiful architecturally pleasing buildings of this first capital of modern Greece are almost all a few hundred years old. Filyra Pension is situated in the nook of a little sidestreet which is quiet and protected from any motorcycle noise, yet very close to the action of the church square and all the shopping streets. We had a room for three which was a comfortable size for 3 adults and was decorated beautifully. Noor and her husband were helpful, answered all our questions, and kept our bags for the last day since we didn't want to leave until the last minute. The pension is just a 10 minute walk from the lively Aravanitia swimming beach, and the staircase (of 900 steps) up to the fort is on the way. Also Filyra Pension is very close to the big public square with the bus station. This is where the public bus will arrive from Athens, and where you can get a different public bus up to the ancient theater and archaeological site at Epidaurus. (Note: the site is "Epidavros Teatro," high in the mountains, as opposed to Epidavros the town on the coast.) Everything about Filyra Pension was excellent- good plumbing, plenty of hot water, quiet rooms complete with snacks, coffee pot and a mini fridge, all with a very reasonable price and lovely decor. To find it, walk a few short blocks down Papanikolaou until you see the back of a church. Take a very sharp right turn, go down a few steps and you will see it in the bend. It's something between a street and a walkway. (And if you need a good market, the Carrefours is close by, just behind the post office.) You can spend a lot more for a view and breakfast, but we liked the close access and better price here.
