Nafplion, Greece. This is an old prison sitting on it's own island. When we were there they you could take a boat out to it and stay there all day, not sure if they still do that.

There are times when alone is the best place to be! Bourtzi Castle, Nafplio, Greece stands alone proudly in the middle of the sea!

Because of its Venetian roots, Napflion feels like a bit of Italy, nestled away in the Greek Peloponnese.  Great beaches, great food, great shopping and none of the headache that comes with being in a big city like Athens.  I always like to come here after spending time in Athens to relax.  Also, lots of GREAT day trips.  My favorite so far has been catching an opera in the ancient Greek theatre at Epidaurus, about a 40 minute bus ride out of town.

Nafplion, Greece: My kind of town

Epidaurus (Greece)  The prosperity brought by the Asklepieion enabled Epidaurus to construct civic monuments too: the huge theatre that delighted Pausanias for its symmetry and beauty, which is used once again for dramatic performances, the ceremonial Hestiatoreion (banqueting hall), baths and a palaestra. The theater was designed by Polykleitos the Younger in the 4th century BC. The original 34 rows were extended in Roman times by another 21 rows.

The theatre of The Sanctuary of Asklepios at Epidaurus, Greece.  You can hear a coin drop in the center of the theatre even if you are sitting in the very last row!
