SIGHTS

Nafplio is a city with unique beauties, which had the good fortune to host some of the most important events in the recent history of Greece. Buildings of special architecture, fortresses and churches enchant the visitor. In the narrow alleys the scents of the flowers are mixed with the salt of the sea. At night, the colors play hide and seek with the statues. Beaches full of light and beauty are waiting for you, just a few hours away from Athens.
