Formerly the Capital of Greece

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. The highlights of the town are the medieval fortresses high on the hill and the fortified island of Bourtzi. There's plenty of historical landmarks within Nafplio to visit as well, or just relax under the shady umbrella with a drink by the waterfront.
