Once in Nafplio

The Center for Hellenic Studies (Greece), Harvard University is located on Philhellene Square and Otto Street, in Iatrou Building, in the Old Town of Nafplio, right on the sea front.

There are multiple ways to reach CHS Greece. One suggested route is entering Nafplio on Argous Street, taking a right turn on Megalou Alexandrou Street, following the signs to ‘City Center’. Once reaching the coastal road ‘Nafplio – Nea Kios’, the old town of Nafplio can be seen on the left side. From that point, take a left turn and follow Bouboulinas Street. The public parking area will be on the right hand. The Center for Hellenic Studies is located on Philhellene Square, 1,2 km from that point, along the coast. 

Buses may embark and disembark passengers at the parking area right across the Philhellene Square, but they cannot park there (the parking area for big buses is in the first part of the parking area, while entering the town of Nafplio).

Nafplio can be easily covered on foot, as all distances are short. The old town of Nafplio is not accessible by car, and visitors can park their vehicles in the public parking area in front of the promenade (Bouboulinas Str. – no parking fee). In weekends and holidays, parking might be difficult to find.
