Nafplio, Greece

The historic seaport town of Nafplio is situated on the Greek peninsula of Peloponnese and has grown considerable over the 20th century, stretching out across the verdant hillsides of the Argolic Gulf. As one of most beautiful and romantic towns in Greece, Nafplio offers visits a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life, allowing them to relax in quaint surroundings and soak up the Greek town’s unique and friendly ambience. Mythology states that the town was created by Nafplios, son of the Greek god Poseidon, and although this may not be entirely true, the town can trace its history back as far as the prehistoric era. Nafplio’s celebrated and eminent history and culture is reflected in the ancient landmarks, monuments and relics found across the region, alongside modern developments, which include excellent shops, bars and restaurants littered throughout the centre of town and along the coastline.

 Castles

Nafplio is well-known for its ancient castles, which have stood in the town for centuries. The Palamidi Fortress was originally built by the Venetians in 1686 and was never conquered until 1822 when the Greeks finally succeeded in their siege of the castle. Visitors can tour this well-preserved fortress via the legendary 999 steps, or alternatively by car. The view from the castle walls is spectacular, offering a chance to see much of Nafplio and many historic structures within the town. Nafplio’s other castle is the Venetian fortress of Bourtzi, which was erected around 1400 by architect Antonio Gambell. To the east of the town, some of Nafplio’s ancient fortifications also still remain.

The town is packed full of excellent and intriguing museums and galleries, showcasing an array of interesting artefacts from Nafplio’s long and illustrious past. Popular local museums include the Archaeology Museum, the War Museum, the Komboloi Museum, the Stone Museum and the Ouzo Museum. Nafplio also boasts several remarkable cultural centres and galleries such as the National Gallery, Municipal Art Gallery, Nafplio Art Gallery and the Alpha Bank Cultural Centre.
