Nafplio, Greece is a seaport town in the Peloponnese. Nafplio was the first capital of the newly established Greek state and was home to the first pharmacy, theatre, and printing office. That history along with the red-tiled roofs, cobbled streets, and buildings of Venetian architecture, will take you back in time. Castles, archaeological sites, and monuments can be found around the town. Needless to say there is plenty to see and do during the day in Nafplio, but what about the night? Don’t worry, the town of Nafplio has you covered there, too.
Watch the Sunset
Watching the sunset anywhere in Greece is a beautiful moment and Nafplio is no different. There are many places to watch the sunset, but a few spots where you might enjoy it with a wonderful and unobstructed view. One of these ideal spots if the clock tower at the Fortress of Acronafplia. The Fortress is located on a hill and a climb up will reward you greatly, not only with the beautiful sunset, but a view of the Argolic Gulf, the city of Nafplio, and Arvanitia Beach. Across from Bourzi Castle you will find Akti Miaouli Street, another good spot to sunset watch.
