In the middle of the harbor of Nafplio, the "Aktaion Mare" all day café & bistro stands proudly unique, really hard to miss! One of the most historic cafeterias, of the most popular spots in the city, is housed in an impressive and recently renovated neoclassical mansion. In the same place long ago (probably in 1828), the first billiards showed up in Nafplio, but also the first beauty contest in the city took place (for this reason the shop, in the 1960s and '70s, had many mirrors on its walls)!
"Aktaion Mare" as named nowadays, is the hangout with the best view, for all hours of the day or night! Standing in front of a sea that changes look and colors every hour, but who makes your soul to calm and your eyes to rest almost every time. You also see Bourtzi fortress just in front of you, a glance away! Sometimes bathed in the brightness of day, "floating" in the Argolic gulf and sometimes romantically painted with the colors of the sunset and illuminated at night - a landmark of Nafplio, together with Palamidi castle.
Apart from its magnificent location, Aktaion Mare impresses you with its modern, yet warm decoration, its cozy and comfortable armchairs and sofas, its polite staff, as of course with the endless Menu, with suggestions of coffee, drinks, desserts, even hearty food! Here you can taste various sweets, crepes, waffles, ice cream, up to many food options, to accompany your beer or wine, from the excellent proposals of Aktaion! I am amazed by the fact, that a large group can sit at any time and order just anything, whether someone is thirsty or really hungry! All needs and preferences are fulfilled! The richest menu I have seen, in a similar all day hangout!...
In the "Aktaion" time flows loosely and sweetly or... it just stops...
