Where culture and art meet entertainment…
40 km from Epidaurus is the famous Nafplio! Akronafplia with its great fortifications and all the other magnificent castles speak out the story of the place. Visit the castle of the Francs and go all the way up the 999 steps of the legendary Palamidi! The most elaborate, sophisticated and well preserved complex of Venetian bastions still stands there imperturbable gazing out at Bourtzi. Bourtzi is a complex of Venetian towers on the little island of Agioi Theodoroi, where you can easily go with a small boat from the harbor.
A ride on a train is something you must definitely try! And those cobbled little streets with their numerous “dromoskales” also entice you into walking on them, discovering Nafplio’s past! The Syntagma Square (Constitution Square), the Kapodistrias Square and the brazen statue of Kolokotronis are but a few of the attractions of Nafplio. Apart from the historical sites, you can also enjoy the infinite blue strolling at the seafront in Arvanitia!
And don’t forget to visit the ancient Tiryns, the unassailable castle-kingdom, located on the hill between Nafplio and Argos.
