Katakolon to Ancient Olympia and BackAuthor: PenelopeCorelli (More Trip Reviews by PenelopeCorelli)
Date of Trip: July 2009
This whole area of Katakolon was quite clean and pleasant, in contrast to Nafplion, which in spite of the scenic views had a lot of graffiti (and places with litter.)
We stopped here a second time, two weeks later, on Tuesday, July 28. This was the only repeated port of the cruise, and we went to town just to use the Internet at a "Cafe". There is one very close to port. We were without Cate on this leg of the cruise, and both of us used the Internet for 30 minutes at a total cost of €5. We also bought a mini book on Greek mythology for her, as she'd be studying this topic & reading the Odyssey as a high school freshman. The rest of the time we stayed on the ship, which is nice when most passengers/"pax" are off - An unoccupied hot tub!
There's a rocky "beach" area here at the port, but we didn't go. Jim went back on the ship & I took his photo on the balcony. There's a Duty-Free shop here as you get off/on the ship. Prices are in dollars or euros. In addition to the cosmetics, perfumes, liquor & cigarettes, there are some toys and souvenirs of Greece.
