Nafplio Travel Guide: 230 reviews and 701 photos
A lovely seaside town, with its picturesque harbour, NAFPLIO is on the Peloponnese Peninsula and dominated by three citadels - Palamidi Fortress, the Akronafplia Fortress and Bourtzi Fortress. Located in the Prefecture of Argolida and 145 km ( 90 miles ) southwest of Athens. For several years after the Greek War of Independence ( 1821 to 1828 ) Nafplio was Greece's first Capital.
I was absolutely in awe of this lovely town, with its elegant Venetian homes and neoclassical civic buildings. It so reminded me of the Spanish town of Marbella, with its cobbled streets and balconies overflowing with vines of bouganvillia. As an added bonus, Hans and I got to meet Anna ( Anpe ) and Theodosia (Siaki68), two lovely ladies who call Nafplio their home town.
Come along with me and share my experience and perhaps you will fall in love with NAFPLIO too.
