  • Awesome the cyclopean walls, with easy access, ample parking and convenient browsing of the archaeological site. Unfortunately, as other members have said there is no proper signage to explain what one sees. The visit to the Archaeological Museum of Nafplio is necessary for grasping the real greatness of the history of this place. See it as a piece of the Museum, not as an independent space and will 100% apozimeiwtheite!

  • A nice monument close to Nafplio. Free entry. About 1/2 hour is sufficient. Almost no signs though. A great view from the top.
  • Nice place to go to see some ancient ruins. I wish there was some more details about the place though, but otherwise it was a nice visit. I recommend going with it's cool as there's virtually no shade.
  • Another lesser known site, though heard about it at University. Rather quiet when I was here, and quite cheap to visit as well.
  • An archaeological site of a mycenaek fortress/castle. Really old, 13 century BC. The area consists mainly of large megalithic walls and remains of the groundings of buildings. The area has no sade and can get really hot. It could have more informations so as the visitor to understand more. An UNESCO world heritage site. Ticket price 4€
  • Dropped in on way past and was please tilt surprised by the site. It is an early bronze age site with enormous fortified walls. You can really see why ancient accounts claimed it was built by a Cyclops. One of the better ancient sites.

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.
