What do I need to know before moving to Nafplio?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Nafplio, they said:

"Nafplio, is a small, picturesque city located in the Peloponnese region, known for its rich history, beautiful architecture, and stunning sea views. Before moving to Nafplio, expats should be aware that the primary language spoken is Greek, although English is also widely understood, especially among younger generations and in tourist areas. The cost of living in Nafplio is generally lower than in larger Greek cities like Athens, but it's still higher than in many other parts of Greece. The city offers a range of accommodation options, from traditional houses in the old town to modern apartments in newer areas. Nafplio has a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. It's important to note that many buildings in Greece, including in Nafplio, do not have central heating, so it can get quite cold indoors during the winter. The city has a relaxed pace of life, with many locals and expats enjoying leisurely meals at local tavernas, strolling along the waterfront, or exploring the city's many historical sites. However, it's worth noting that Nafplio is a popular tourist destination, so it can get quite busy during the peak tourist season. Public transportation in Nafplio is limited, so having a car can be beneficial, especially for exploring the surrounding areas. However, the city itself is quite walkable, and many amenities are within easy walking distance. Healthcare in Nafplio is generally good, with a local hospital and several pharmacies. However, for more specialized medical care, you may need to travel to a larger city. Finally, it's important to be aware of the bureaucratic challenges that can come with living in Greece. Dealing with Greek bureaucracy can be time-consuming and frustrating, so patience and persistence are key. It's also highly recommended to hire a local lawyer or consultant to help navigate the legal and administrative aspects of moving to and living in Greece," remarked one expat who made the move to Nafplio.
