A Mindful Living Tour
Visit the famous Corinth Canal -- a maritime short cut that is four miles long, 70 feet wide and has sloping sides 170 feet tall. It connects the Ionian and Aegean seas.
Board the Canal Vista boat for a ride through the canal and listen to the interesting narration on the history and infrastructure of the canal, which conceptually dates back to 600 BC but in its modern form is 220 years old. Refreshments will be offered on board.
Nafplion is one of Greece's prettiest towns -- the narrow streets of the Old Town are filled with elegant Venetian houses and gracious neo-classical mansions. The towering Palamidi Fortress dominates the entire setting. Your walking tour allows you to experience a day in the life of Náfplion and to marvel at the beautiful buildings lining the port. Follow your guide to Kapodistriou Square and Park, dedicated to the memory of the first Governor of Greece. In the park, with the beloved Palamidi Fortress in the background, is the statue of Koloktronis -- the Grand Old Man of the Morea. Koloktronis was the leader of the Greeks during the War of Independence. It was he who besieged the Turkish-occupied Palamidi citadel for 15 months before it was finally surrendered back to Greece.
Across the way you can see the current Town Hall building, which began life as the very first high school in Greece.
Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes. Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience.
