In a small peninsula of the Argolic Golf, less than two hour from Athens, Nafplio is one of the most picturesque and imposing towns in Greece. It is the place where the Venetian charm, the Greek bravery and the Ottoman impact can truly be seen around all of its corners.
Two castles, one fortress, numerous museums, romantic strolls, beautiful beaches are there to enchant your soul!
You should definitely enjoy the sunset, walk around the bloomed, narrow streets of the Old Town and discover all the places that makes Nafplio, perhaps the major contender for the title of the most beautiful town in Greece. Must-see spots? Well…:
- Syntagma Square: Meet Ioannis Kapodistrias, King Otto, King Agamemnon…
- Palamidi Castle: Climb all of 999 steps full of rock and get impressed by the breathtaking view
- Acronafplia Castle: Nafplio’s oldest castle
- Bourtzi: The Venetian fortress on the rocky islet
Tip: Combine your visit in Nafplio with a small road trip at the nearby Unesco sites: Tirintha, Mykines, Epidaurus and Mystras
Smell the jasmine and bougainvillea creepers, smile and enjoy this #TouriusExperience in Nafplio!
