A walk in the rain: The secret local walk
The path curved around the outside of the high cliffs, prickly cacti growing sideways off the rocks. “Ahhhh!” my one year old, Felix, would scream in a high pitched squeal of delight every time we saw a cat, which were plentiful along the path. We had started the trail from the parking lot that sat just below the Palamidi Castle. There had been a camper van parked there, full of kids, laundry hanging to dry on the outside. I was tempted by the idea of renting a camper and making a road trip of our time in Greece.
The walk had been recommended to us by our airbnb host (one of my favorite all time Airbnbs: Nafplio Cottage), who toted it as a local secret. The path was quite clear and easy to find, so it was not a very well hidden secret, but it did offer some spectacular views, despite the hazy weather that warned of rain. It did not take too long to walk along the cliff. We had packed breakfast, so we sat on a bench eating and looking out at Bourtzi Castle until the rain started. It’s hard to get over the beauty of Nafplio, which is like a postcard from every direction.
When the rain started we escaped into a nearby cafe. Each of the restaurants had torches burning to produce heat in the “cold” winter weather. It was nice to soak up the heat on a dreary day.
