12. Nafplio Window
The first portion of my May Greece vacation was spent in Nafplio, a small town on the Peloponnese Peninsula. Nafplio is on the coast and exceedingly charming with beautiful bouganvillia vines growing across the alleys and houses tucked into the hillside. After many hours of travel from Chicago to Madrid, Madrid to Athens, Athens bus to the KTEL bus terminal, and KTEL bus from Athens to Nafplio, we were delighted to find that this view awaited us in the hotel room we eventually found. We were able to see all the way down to the water. It was a lovely place to spend several days and an image which was enjoyable to revisit and paint.
