  • Amazing views over the town of Nafplio.. you can drive up there, no need to climb the steep walkway.. Absolutely worth the visit.. a must when you drove all the way to this little town
  • You must visit whilst in Nafplio. The history and views are remarkable. For those who are of more mature years I recommend catching a taxi from town (one way about €7) and walking back down the 999 steps into the old town. By all means skip the taxi and climb up to the citadel via the steps if you are super fit - but beware: it is steep and arduous.
  • A great place with a beautiful 360 view! Well worth climbing the long and steep stairs! 4 stars because of the lack of signs and information.
  • Absolutely gorgeous views. I cant wait to go back. Was only 8€ to enter. Try to go at sunset!
  • Worth the 1000 stairs climb! Just magnificent. Don't forget to visit Kolokotronis' cell that is located at the top. Entrance for students outside EU is 4€. For EU students is free.

Where to stay in Nafplio

If you come to Nafplio to admire its Venetian architecture, book a room in the atmospheric old town. This central part of the city draws the biggest crowds, offering well-appointed rooms in boutique hotels and family-run guesthouses. The new town remains less frequented by tourists, providing clean rooms and good food a short drive from the city center. For fast access to Nafplio's ancient sites, explore the area's fishing villages, where many locals rent out simply furnished rooms near sandy beaches and secluded coves.
