"LOVELY SEASIDE TOWN OF NAFPLIO" Nafplio Favorite Tip by LoriPori
Nafplio Favorites: 50 reviews and 60 photos
Favorite thing: 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.
Fondest memory: Getting there. From Athens, head south to the Corinth Canal. Stop at Mycenae en route. Take the new Corinth - Trilolos Road as far as Argos limit. Leave your car in the large municipal parking lot by the harbour ( no charge ).
