Holidays in
Nafplion

Romantic town in the Peloponnese

The ancient town of Nafplion is undoubtedly one of the most attractive on mainland Greece. The Peloponnese region is brimming with natural beauty, stunning architecture and relics from the ancient world, and Napflion is the diamond in its crown. The town is built on a hill, just behind the seafront with its panoramic views across the Argolic Gulf, and nestled in the shadow of the towering Palamidi fortress. Nafplion holidays are rich in culture.

As the first capital of Greece after the country’s war of independence between 1823 and 1834, and having been an important port since classical times, the higgledy-piggledy streets are laden with a colourful assortment of Venetian, Byzantine and French buildings to admire. And beyond the town, the forests and mountains await. So whether you want to go hiking, sip a coffee in the Venetian square or paddle in crystalline water, holidays to Nafplion will have you covered.
