Many Greek myths and stories emanate from this town and the surrounding area, its history goes back fifteen thousand years or so. Navplion is a working port, but the old town has an enchanting atmosphere in the evenings with all sorts of shops and tavernas and even a museum. The town has pretty side streets, with a mix of Venetian, Turkish and Neo Classical architecture from the early 19th century. Navplion is a fascinating town of significant importance and was shortly the Capital of Greece after the War of Independence. The breathtaking Palamidi Fortress is set spectacularly high on a 216m rock outcrop. Locals claim that it has 999 steps up to the top!
Ashore: restaurants and shops with an extensive supermarket within 200m from the quay. A place that we recommend is the Antica Gelateria Di Roma, an Italian ice cream parlour just off the main square, that does nearly every ice cream imaginable and is delicious!
