Additional Location Information
What better to be able to combine on your holiday a traditional, picturesque Greek village together with the wonders of the Peloponnese and close proximity to Nafplion.
Your stay at Vivari can offer you all of these things and more. Visit the small church of Saint Spyridon where many weddings are held and the chapel of Saint Nikolaos which is found at the entrance to the port and next to the lighthouse
The village itself has a quiet, peaceful atmosphere and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy one's holiday in Greece. It offers a number of excellent tavernas, each having a panoramic view of the bay.
Vivari is located on the South East cost of the Argolida county, close to the historic town of Nafplion and is favoured by tourists and locals for its beauty and unspoilt coastline. The Bay of Vivari is a large, natural harbour which is protected from winds and is also popular with yachts and other vessels for overnight mooring.
The port of Vivari was used as a naval station by the Venetians during their occupation of the area.
Vivari is a magical village with a unique charm, scenery, and crystal clear sea magnetises visitors from all over the world both by road and sea.
Everyday needs such as bakers, butchers, supermarkets, post office etc. are catered for by the nearby town of Drepano (just 1.5 kms).
All in all Vivari has a great deal to offer to the tourist plus it is in an excellent location from which to visit all the archaeological sites and places of interest of the Peloponnese on a day trip basis
Nafplion is found just 11 kms away from Vivari, is magical city that was the first capital of Greece after it was freed form the Turkish and as such has a rich variety of historical monuments, castles and museums.
Nafplion's old city has a magical air about it and the narrow streets with their Venetian style overhanging balconies are lined with shops, cafes and tavernas. A particular favourite are the worry bead shops and makers who do a roaring trade all the year. The town is a magnet to tourists all year round and is particularly popular with Athenians for weekend breaks given the short distance from Athens.
Visit the "Pili tis Ksiras" - the old land gate from ancient times, the Palamidi castle that towers above the town with its 999 steps to the top or take a short boat trip to the Bourtzi castle found in harbour, probably THE most photographed castle/islet in Greece. The Acronafplia castle deserves a visit, as does the Pente Adelfia/Psaromachala area at the top pf the old town.
Nafplion is home to a unique variety of museums, visit the newly refurbished Archaeological Museum in Syntagma Square, the Folklore Museum, the Military Museum, the Toy Museum, the Worry Bead Museum and the Ouzo Museum (where one may also see the product being made and attend a tasting).
Nafplion is a romantic city with a rare charm and holds something for everyone, making it a must to visit!
One and a half hours from Athens, over the Corinth Canal, you will find yourself transported to the Argolida, nestling in the thumb of the Peloponnesean peninsula..
In this north eastern position, the Argolis played a central part in the history of Greece and was the most densely populated area during the Mycenean occupation, Myceane, Tyrins, Argos and nearby towns give proof of this belief. In 1874 Heinrich Schliemann began unearthing this forgotten world .
The Argolis gives the feeling of being totally separated, existing in its own self-contained world, protected by mountains, spilling out into vast fertile plains laced with olive, orange and lemon groves, some farmers diversifying and growing apricots, pistachios, tobacco, lettuce, artichokes, vines to name but a few. This fertile valley then stretches out taking you to an array of amazing beaches, hidden coves and magnificent waters Karathona Beach (Nafplion), Vivari bay, Tolo, Kandia, Old Epidaurus.
An abundance of archealogical sites to visit, Nafplio, Myceane with the Palace, Tomb of King Agamemnon and lovely museum. Tyrins settled between Nafplion and Mycenea. Epidaurus Theatre, with the Sanctuary of Asklipios (God of Medicine) and museum, set in glorious surroundings and famous for its acoustics and performances of plays during July and August, Lerna, 10 km from Mili, where it is said that the Hydra (10 headed snake) was slaughtered by Heracles, Kefalari where you will find the remains of the first pyramids built, Ancient Assini at the end of the Tolo sandy beach, the list is endless.
The Peloponnese, the most southerly part of mainland Greece, a mere hour from the centre of Athens will bring you to the Corinth Canal. The Canal separates the Peloponnese from the mainland making it an island of beauty and interest.
The vast contrast in scenery and the multitude of areas to visit in the Peloponnese make it a special place to visit. High mountains, long sandy beaches, fertile land with an abundance of agriculture, together with the rich history and archaeological sites abound make it an unresistable area to visit.
Sites to visit spread far and wide over the Peloponnese area shaped almost like a Mulberry leaf and it can be know as Morea (Greek for Mulberry Tree). To the west you will find Olympia, know to us all as the birthplace of the Olympic Games, Mystra, with its Byzantine Churches and famous paintings, Kalavrita with one of the very few rack and pinion railways in the world, making its way through the Virakios Gorge, Sparta famous for the Spartian warriors.
North of the Peloponnese finds you close to the Argolid, possibly the most known area of this peninsula due to the famous areas of Epidavros, Mycenae, Nemea just to name a few.
Not only will you find historical sites in the Peloponnese but stretches of long sandy beaches, quiet coves, some of the cleanest seas in Europe, with is crystal clear, tantalising warm waters, catering to all tastes for a wonderful break or holiday.
