I posted a question earlier, now the site has lost it. So here it is again...
You've all been so helpful in planning my itinerary, and I have one more question. I'm picking up a rental car in Piraeus around 4PM and driving West to Hotel Cokkinis for the night. I plan a brief stop in the morning at the Corinth Canal and a walk around Acrocorinth. I'm guessing that will take up the entire morning, and I can get on the road by noon-ish.
Does it make logistical sense to drive from there directly to Monemvasia, spend the night and following morning there exploring the castle? Would the drive get me there before dark? It looks to be about a 2-1/2 hour drive from the Corinth area.
From Monemvasia, I'll drive up to Nafplio and base there for 5 nights to visit Mycenae, Epidaurus, etc. I'd hate to be so close to Monemvasia and not visit.
What are your thoughts?
