Oh No. Driving Athens.

Jump to last reply

Without jumping into the blah blah blah of how terrible Athens driving is, what do you think of this plan.

I'm already locked into 7 nights at Hotel Cypria (Acropolis View) April 24 to May 1, however, I'd consider paying for an extra hotel night somewhere else if need be.

I think the biggest problem will be jet lag, but we can take naps along the way.

- Arrive Athens Airport SUNDAY (April 24) 5:PM I'm told Sunday evening traffic should be not bad.
- Using navigator, drive rental car straight to METROPARK at Mitropoleos 21-23 & Patroou 8, Athens (18 Euro/Nt).
- Monday morning at 7:30 AM retrieve car and drive to Delphi, See Delphi then drive to Arachova, to hopefully see some of Agios Georgios, April 23, 3 day festival, known as panigyraki; and if time permits or festival is not going on go to Hosios Loukas Monastery. Return to METROPARK Monday night.
- Tuesday morning drive to Nafplio, see Nafplio all day, then drive to Temple of Poseidon (the drive seems like all highway) for sunset, return car Tuesday night. If can't make it to Temple of Poseidon on Tuesday then keep car extra day (maybe stay in Nafplio) and go to Temple of Poseidon on Wednesday morning , then return car.
- Rest of trip stay in Athens without car.
