Nafplio Luxury Vacations
Highly popular with Athenians, Nafplio sits along the eastern coast of the Peloponnese Peninsula, a place that many have called one of the most beautiful and romantic in Greece. It offers the ideal escape with just about everything anyone could ever want in a Greek getaway, just a couple of hours from Athens. Enjoy beautiful beaches, lively bars, tasty authentic meals in local tavernas, all sorts of archaeological treasures and other historic delights. The town was said by mythology to be founded by the son of the god Poseidon, Nafplios, with a history tracing back to prehistoric times. The marks of many eras can be seen here, including Roman, Byzantine, Frankish, Venetian, and Ottoman. Ancient walls and medieval castles, Ottoman fountains, neoclassical and Venetian buildings, all mesmerize with their magnificent, unique architecture.
Nafplio is wonderful just to wander around, slowing down and enjoy moments like watching the sun go down behind the mountains as it splashes an array of red and orange hues across the bay; relaxing in the main square watching kids play, families enjoying feasts and couples sipping wine. During the day, you won’t want to miss taking a scenic walk around the headland which brings breathtaking views of the mountain and the sea. This is an ideal place to experience life and gorgeous scenery in a small Greek town.
