Nafplio is a beautiful seaside town situated in the Argolid prefecture and facing the Argolikos Bay. From Athens, it's a 2-hr drive through beautiful countryside and historical areas. This picturesque town used to be the capital of Greece in 1829 to 1834.
The scenic town is popular with Greeks & foreigners as a honeymoon destination because of its historical aspects & proximity to the blue sea.
