Nafplio, a Gem of Greece's Pelopponese


The City

Narrow streets, beautiful squares, Bourtzi island under the light and Palamidi with the 999 steps, are waiting to welcome the visitor. This seaport's history stretches back to classical antiquity in a region that's one of the most ancient in Greece.


With the aroma of basil wafting through the air… the old town of Nafplio takes you by hand for a magic walk in another more romantic and beautiful time. Old buildings, picturesque and graceful, many with balconies that appear to embrace one another..


This small island inside the port of Nafplio, well known for its well-preserved fortress dating back to the Venetian times. Bourtzi is undoubtedly one of this city's most most photographed sites.



The castle of Nafplio was built by the Venetians colonists in 1867. Palamidi can be reached either by car or by ascending its 999 steps. The fortress has been used as a prison in the past.
