More running in Nafplio

In my last post I showed you the lovely walkway in Nafplio. If you turn right at the end of the walkway (instead of heading left back into town), you find yourself on a lovely trail which is perfect for an evening run.

Be careful though, it is much tougher (and longer) than the walkway; even though it follows the cliff there are lots of steep uphills and downhills, but if I lived in Nafplio it could easily become one of my regular route. And if you’re brave you can run up some very steep switchbacks from the beach to the top of the hill – all the way to the fortress.

Seaside walk in Nafplio

Lois and I found this wonderful cliffside walk around the outside of the town in Nafplio. The sun was beating against the rocks and the heat was bouncing down onto the walkway, so it was pretty warm – much warmer than we anticipated earlier in the day when we bundled ourselves into jeans and jerseys.

We found this little arch in the middle of the path; a nice spot for a little respite from the heat of the day.

It’s not a long walk, only about 1500m from the harbour to the bottom of the fortress stairs, but you can swing a right and carry on down a dirt path for another few km if you want (which of course I did a day or 2 later).
