More and more residents of Nafplio and especially from the suburbs of the city, choose to use bicycles for their family excursions. The city, after the pedestrianization of many areas and the car traffic prohibitions, opened up to a more calm and ecological way of life.
However, if you are cycling fans, or even better, cycling athletes, the uphill road to Palamidi and Karathona will train your muscles, while enjoying a breathtaking view. And if you are experienced cyclists, the distance to the closest touristic towns by the sea are approximately 10-12 km away.
For instance, Nea Kios is 10 km away from Nafplio, whereas Tolo is 12 km away and Drepano 11. During summer months these coastal towns are filled with tourists and families that enjoy the beautiful beaches of the area.
