Like many towns in Greece, has a visual harmony and a faded prettiness that with respect to its history passes through modernity and that is one of the things that captivates all visitors. Talking about history, Nafplio in ancient times was the capital of Greece and had royal palace and great power that still remain untouched. This power and the ancient remains are what attracts travelers from around the world and Greece, because Napflio is one of the most famous destinations amongst Greeks too.
But it's not only the history that makes Nafplio a good destination, it's also the vibe that this town has. In the afternoon when you walk in the central square you will be amazed with the people that walk up and down gossiping, children playing games and elderly playing cards while drinking Greek coffee. Their traditional cuisine is delicious accompanied with their great red wine "Agiorghitiko" make the perfect combination of a wonderful dinner. The old town is majestic for couples and for family vacations too. The beach is crystal clear and fully organized with every facility travelers may need.
