On the way you have to pay twice at toll posts. Don't leave the motorway near Korinthos. Follow the green signs inidicating "Tripoli" Leave at the exit "Ancient Nemea/Nafplio" Follow the signs to Nafplio. Don't use from here any navigation systems, because they don't kwow the new road! There are some exits from the the new road like "Agia Triada", "Midea", Poulakida... 2,2 km after the exit "Panariti" go to the left.There is a sign to Epidavros and Tolo,onother one to "Epidavros", but it is only in Greek. Continuing you will find three roundabouts. At each one take the second exit - that is - follow the road straight. If you went another road and you have passed Nafplio go towards the centre of the town up to a big crossing. Follow the sign to Tolo and Epidavros to the left. After 3,3 km (right side a filling station) you go to the right, direction Tolo. At the end of the village of Lefkakia keep left, direction "Drepano". In Drepano see the picture. (down)


Travelling by plane, bus and train: Best are flights to Athens. Also Kalamata is possible but only in summertime. There are only four times a day buses from Kalamata to Tripoli and Nafplio. Athens - the best way: Express-Bus Nr. E 93 from the airport to the central bus station "Kifissou". The buses leave near the exit 5 downstairs the airport. Tickets at the counter. You may use also a taxi, but it costs a lot of money and the luggage is additionally charged. Be careful! Ask the taxi driver already at the airport how much does it cost. Be sure that the driver switches the counter only when you leave. It might be running from the previous passenger... At the bus terminal you can buy tickets for Nafplio just left from the entrance. The places have numbers. The buses for the direction "Argolida" leave just at the exit of the big hangar on the right hand. At the sign is written "Nauplia" or "Nafplio". Buses run weekly half past every hour, on Sundays every two hours. The staff announces the departure only a few minutes beforehand. It takes two and a half hour to go to Nafplio, maximum three. Last bus from Athens weekly 20.30 h Friday and Sunday 22.30 h
There is also the possibility to go by train to Korinthos. From Athens Airport are trains to Korinthos every hour, but from Korinthos to Nafplio the train was suspended in 2011. Somebody must pick you up there. http://www.trainose.com


If you get lost in Athens, which is very likely possible, go into the centre. Here may be you can find a road sign "Korinthos". Even when you go to Pireas this is no tragedy. Go around the port and follow the signs to "Korinthos". Ask the company, where you rent the car for a map of Athens and Attica.
Good luck in the Athens permanent traffic jam! Attention! The motorcyclist in Athens use any gap and helmets they are waering only when raining or very cold...
