Ναύπλιο Nafplion visit in Greece - wander in a dreamlike trance...discover this town's precious places, beginning in the medieval old town...glide down the narrow cobblestone lane ways...enjoy the beautifully restored neoclassical mansions with the bougainvillea languidly laughing down the walls and balconies and the tinkling fountains.
When you have recovered, climb up to the Palamidi Castle for wonderful views of the harbour and the Argolic Gulf, or walk the promenade along the foreshore and around the walking trail to sandy Karathona Beach...
You will be doing plenty of climbing to reach the top of the Palamidi Fortress, and walking around the point to the nearby beach of Arvanitia.
The warm biscuit glow of the stone work in the streets of the old town
is worth every moment; evenings in this enchanting town are magical.
