Situated less than two hours away from Athens, Nafplio is the perfect getaway all year round. Its privileged location in the Argolic Gulf in the Peloponnese offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities. Nafplion was the first capital of modern Greece and therefore is considered one of Greece’s most historically important cities.
The Palamidi Castle is the trademark of the city and unquestionably one of the country’s most popular landmarks. The 17th-century Venetian fortress is 216 meters above ground and it takes 999 steps to reach its top. Other places that narrate the history of Nafplio are the Archaeological Museum, the Constitution Square in the center of the city and the B.Papantoniou” Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation.
Take a walk around the scenic alleys, visit the Bourtzi Castle and explore the story of Nafplio at your own pace.
