The romantic first Capital of Modern Greece
The wonderful spirit of Nafplion combined with rich history make Nafplion one of Greece’s prettiest and most romantic towns.
It charms visitors with the knockout waterside beneath the towering Palamidi fortress, old town with narrow alleys, elegant Venetian houses, neoclassical mansions, tavernas and cafes, posh boutiques, comfortable hotels, guesthouses, and interesting museums.
Nafplio was the first capital of Greece after Independence from the Ottomans (1833 -1834) and has been a major port since the Bronze Age.
The town also is an ideal base from which to explore many nearby ancient sites.
