Wat je gaat doen

We will meet at the heart of the old town of Nafplion which was the first capital of the modern history of Greece and one of the most beautiful cities in the country that most of the Greek poets visited or lived in the past. We will start a walk based on the history of Greek poetry from the ancient time untill the modern era. You will have the chance to experience the city as a local and explore some of the hidden spots of the city that I was born and grew up. I have created especially for you a handwritten book with some of my favourite poems in both Greek and English and a proper walk that combines history and art . I will be delighted to read to you one of the most iconic speeches that was written about love, ''Eros'' the monologue of Antigone by Sophocles. As we continue we will walk by the sea where we will talk about ''Ithaca'', a poem written by Konstantinos Cavafis. Other writters that will be mentioned are Evripidis, Eschylos, Odysseas Elytis and George Seferis. I will be glad to learn about your favourite poets and broaden my knowledge .

Sofoklis created a magical and unique experience, a completely new way to experience Nafplio. Even if you don’t know anything about poetry or particularly enjoy it, the tour is not about analyzing the poems, but using the emotions they generate to relate to Nafplio on a deeper level. And if you love poetry, all the better. So thoughtfully and graciously done!

Sofoklis has crafted a brilliant mystery tour around, but not strictly about, Nafplio, in which he combines readings with associative commentary touching place and time and culture. What do you keep from this tour? Maybe it’s a feeling for this place: recognition of the rhythms that it demands from its inhabitants and acknowledgment of the specific links and gaps among its many histories, the constellation those histories form, best called out, as always, through poetry.

This amazing experience was a highlight of my time in Greece. I was not so sure what to expect and actually only signed up because of the other enthusiastic reviews, as my love for poetry is not that well developed. But being first time in Greece, the very country of drama, having spent the morning at Epidavros, it seemed the right thing to do - and it was! Sophocles is such a nice guy, who combines a tour of the town which insider knowledge, takes you to amazing places and creates a super easy-going adventure. The three hours, which initially seemed rather long to me, passed away quickly. I had not been to Nafplio before, and a walking tour with super photo options was just what I wanted. He read three well chosen works at special places, and it was in no way embarrassing, no, it was magic, especially as he read them in Greek. He answered all kinds of questions with ease, and he was very eager to make this evening (or as he said: the afternoon) a great one. I am so happy I did this - do yourself a favour, sign up!

Sofoklis is a great host. The whole experience is really unique giving both a perspective on Nafplio and on Greek literature through a walk linking the various sites to poetry. Altogether friendly and relaxed and recommended unequivocally.

This was an ideal way to get to explore the town. You can't beat having a local guide who is passionate about Greek poetry, highly knowledgeable about the area's history and willing to answer any questions about politics, culture, language, and general recommendations. The personalised handwritten poems are the icing on the cake.
