From Epidaurus, the road passed through the small seaport town of Nafplio.
Although Nafplio has only around 15,000 inhabitants, it was the capital of Greece from 1821 to 1834. I think it must be nice to spend an entire day here, but I had only 30 minutes to walk along the harbour and enjoy the scenery. The town is protected by the castles of Palamidi and Bourtzi, which can both be seen from the Philellinon Square.
Following this short stop in Nafplio, the bus continued north to the famous ruins of Mycenae.
I enjoyed this visit to Nafplio, Matthias, such a picturesque location and sweet, small town. Both castles look intriguing.
thank you so much!! I wish I had more time in Nafplio – I believe it must be a great place to relax for a couple of days!!
da war ich letztes Jahr 🙂 das war so ein schöner Urlaub…
das glaube ich!!! Warst Du nur in Nafplio oder auch woanders? Ich könnte dort sicher auch ein paar Tage verbringen, aber einen ganzen Urlaub? 🙂
2 Nächte in Nafplio, insgesamt 11 Tage einmal rund um die Peloponnes 🙂
super interessanter post!! 🙂

the museum is excellent
unfortunately, I had no time to visit it! Maybe next time? 🙂
ah you have really missed something. i walked all the way from there to Midea archaeological site – and in the museum in the main square is an exhibit from dendra – the dendra panoply
Just to make that clear it is in the museum in Nafplion
wow – yes, that looks very interesting! Beautiful photos on your post, too!
many thanks, the armour performs incredibly by the way. there was a documentary with a professional archer taking shots at an identical replica. the weak point was the gaps between the bone plates on teh helmet
feel free to have a wander at the other links
I will!! 🙂
