Situated in the idyllic northeast Peloponnese, Nafplion (otherwise known as Nafplio or Nauplion) is the capital of Argolis and was the first capital of Greece. As such it is one of the most well-known cities in the country and is widely considered as one of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean.   According to legend, the city takes its name from its founder – Nauplios, the son of Poseidon and Amimoni and has since been ruled by some of the most important figures in Greek history.

A series of occupations over the course of time have contributed to its uniquely beautiful architecture and busy, well-equipped port. One of the most significant influences within the city derives from several Venetian settlements dating back to the 15th Century which have resulted in a collection of beautiful Italian stone façade buildings lining the old town piazza. This area creates a historical centre from which a labyrinth of café lined streets wind up into the hills.

Whether spending a week or a weekend, there is plenty to keep you occupied in Nafplion and a fantastic selection of bars and restaurants open late into the night. Perched above the town on a spectacular 216m-high outcrop of rock is the majestic Palamidi Fortress which has been widely recognised as a masterpiece of military architecture. A visit here is a must as the views out over Nafplion are truly unrivalled, where a patchwork of terracotta rooftops meet the turquoise blue of the Argolic Gulf.
