Sunday travel in Greece? Nafplio vs Athens nights?

Jump to last reply

I probably know the safer answer, come to think of it. Our late February flight back to Gatwick leaves ATH at 2100 on a Sunday night. I'd planned to spend the first 5 nights in Athens, then the last three in Nafplio, thinking we'd jump on a bus or train back to ATH the Sunday morning, be back in plenty of theoretical time.

Then somewhere I read that public transport can be problematic on Sundays. I had hoped to avoid driving in Greece, but a rental car from Piraeus would be a possibility, then Metro to the airport.

So my questions: how crazy is driving likely to be between Piraeus and the Peloponnese? Compared to say Boston or NYC? How much will we wish we had car once in Nafplio? How would you split eight nights between Athens and Nafplio? Would three nights in Athens, then four in Nafplio and a last one in Athens make more sense? We'll want to visit ancient sites and museums in both places, put in some café and hiking time. I haven't nailed down our pension and hotel yet.

Opinions?
