Nafplio is the most beautiful of all mainland towns, with its numerous Venetian and Turkish buildings, twisting labyrinthine streets and a sophisticated atmosphere that's a million miles from a tourist resort.
Athenians flood the place at weekends to preen and pose in the cafes. When taking a walk in the picturesque alleys of the Old Town, visitors are drawn by the venetian balconies and the wonderful neoclassical buildings and mansions, images that bring feelings of sweet nostalgia.

At a first glance, Nafplio looks like an Italian city because of its architecture and the colourful houses. More fundamentally, Nafplio has a quite an interesting architecture, with many traces of eighteenth century european towns, Byzantine and Ottoman influences. Many of the old town's buildings date back to two hundred years ago.

Some of the places that are worth visiting are the medieval Old Town, the narrow cobblestone alleys, the neoclassical well preserved mansions with the Bougainvillea trees adorning their yards and balconies and the Turkish fountains. In the very heart of the city stands the Italianate Syntagma Square where visitors can admire important historic buildings and monuments.
Two Turkish mosques (the first used to house the first "Mutual Learning" School and now operates as a cinema/theatre whereas the second was home to the first Greek Parliament), the Archaeological Museum with important artifacts from the Prehistoric and Mycenaean Era and the Municipal Gallery are among the buildings that stand out.
Very close to the modern city stand the church of Agios Spyridonas, in front of which Governor Ioannis Kapodistrias was assassinated, and the church of Agios Georgios boasting important murals such as a copy of the famous Leonardo Da Vinci work "The secret Dinner".
Moreover, another stop is the Palamidi Castle, which proudly stands 216 m above sea level. In order to reach it travellers have to climb all of its 999 steps carved into the rock, but the view from above here is totally rewarding!

Each season is equally attractive and beautiful thanks to the sunny and mild climate and is one of the best places to visit in the off-season. At sunset visitors should take a romantic stroll around the so-called "Arvanitia Promenade", the most popular walk in town (1 km in length) dominated by the rocky landscape of Akronafplia.
Visitors that plan to stroll around; Nafplio is a good base to head out to the numerous archeological sites surrounding it. Epidaurus theater, Mycenae, Tiryns are just some of them.
