Nafplio is a small town tucked into a bay on the north eastern coast of the Peloponnese.
It has a lot going for it – a scenic old town; dramatic Venetian fort; good tavernas and cafes with lots of local life and activity;
elegant central square; lively local markets and a gorgeous walk around the headland with stunning views of the sea and mountains.
The Palamidi is the dominating feature of Nafplio. It’s built all along the spine of a dramatic outcrop of rock, and gives an amazing backdrop to the town.
Myceane, Tiryns and Epidavros are all within easy reach too, convenient for a day trip.
