The last port of call on our journey of discovery on Azamara Quest from Istanbul, Turkey to Piraeus, Greece was Nauplion, Greece. Captain Carl told guests that there was a general sentiment among the guests of being pleasantly surprised by this port that is located  in the Peloponnese region of southern Greece.

Some guests set off on Land Discoveries to explore sights from ancient Greece:  Epidavros and Mycenae.  Other guests took advantage of the tender to explore the town on their own. Captain Carl told us that he hiked the 999-steps to get to the top of the fortress of Palamidi, while others opted to swim, shop, stroll, and drink up the sunshine.
