Anyone been to both Nafplio and Ortygia?

Jump to last reply

If so, can you please tell me your reactions to both? Several years ago we started a Greek trip with a couple days in Nafplio because everyone raved about. For us it was fine and okay, but we found better and more interesting places later on in our trip. I wouldn't gush about it.

Now I am trying to plan for a Sicily trip that will start in Ortygia which many people also seem to love. I don't want to short it on the time it deserves, but I also don't want to book us too long if we have kind of a "it's nice but not great" reaction.

By the way, we are not looking for the opportunities just for lots of sight-seeing (and we are not shoppers). We are primarily looking for ambience in a place that is nice to wander in.

Thanks for the help.
