The ship always sails from the Port of Tolo (harbor)
Sailing at 20:00
3,5 hours (about 90 minutes of sailing in total, about 120 minutes in the city)
20:00 - Departure from Tolo
We sail slowly near the seashore enjoying a panoramic view of Tolo and the little island Koronissi, with the little white church on the top. Sailing towards Nafplio, you can enjoy a lovely sunset. On your right, you can see the church of St Nicholas, the seamen’s protector, and immediately after, the long beach of Karathona. Arriving in Nafplio, we see the premature byzantine fortifications and the majestic Palamidi castle, which was named after the son of the town’s founder, who was a scientist and a doctor at the Trojan war. Palamidi was built by the Venetians in 1715, the year the greeks lost Nafplion from the Turks. Just before approaching the city’s port, you can see the little church of Holy Mary and the small island Bourtzi, the venetian fort in front of the port. On the first walls of the city towards the sea, you can still see 5 cannons that protected Nafplion and made every possible intruder think twice before entering the port. A big strong chain used to connect the 5 cannons with Bourtzi, which was raised and fenced the port, and that is why the venetians called it Porto Cadena.
20:30 - Arrival at the most romantic town in Greece!
You can admire Bourtzi, Palamidi castle, the walls of Akronafplia, the medieval squares, the museums, the graphic walkways, all lit up and romantic. Countless choices for dinner, coffee, drinks.
23:00 - Return to Tolo
All nice things come to an end... On the way back, enjoy soft, relaxed music on board, admire the sky on our open deck and just let yourself be overwhelmed by the romantic atmosphere...
