Winter Moments in Nafplion

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth


Nafplio or Nafplion is a city of Peloponnesus, capital of Argolida and the main port of the eastern Peloponnese. According to the census of 2001 it had 13,822 inhabitants. It is one of the most picturesque cities in the country and was the capital of the Greek state in the years 1828 to 1833.

Nafplio is known for Bourtzi small fort built on an island in the harbor, and two great castles of Nafplio Palamidi Venetian fortress that dominates the town and the Venetian fortress Akronafplia other, on the homonymous peninsula, is built on two consecutive hills separation is due to tectonic causes.

Tourism emerged slowly in the 1960s, but not to the same degree as some other Greek areas. Nevertheless, it tends to attract a number of tourists from Germany and the Scandinavian countries in particular. Nafplio enjoys a very sunny and mild climate, even by Greek standards, and as a consequence has become a popular day or weekend road-trip destination for Athenians in wintertime.

Nafplio is a port, with fishing and transport ongoing, although the primary source of local employment currently is tourism, with two beaches on the other side of the peninsula from the main body of the town and a large amount of local accommodation. There are frequent bus services from/to Athens (KTEL).
