  • Whilst the guards at the entrance are extremely polite and welcoming, the museum itself is a bit disappointing in that it feels abandoned. Nafplio has been a very important city in modern Greece, and ...  more »
  • This is a wonderful (free) war museum. The destruction by the Nazis is evident in the photos. Other military artifacts are very interesting. We have visited more than once.  more »
  • Set is two buildings, a relatively small museum with some very interesting historic photoes and exhibits. Cheap entry - Euro 3 with reductions.  more »

  • Whilst many exhibits had English language descriptions displayed, I had only a vague feel for the background and causes of the various battles and campaigns. Obviously this is because of my complete ignorance of Greek modern history - but I can't be alone in this amongst foreign tourists. Very steep staircase - unsuitable for those with mobility problems. Good video, on continuous loop with English language sub titles, describing WWII events - on third floor. "We will not say hereafter that the Greeks fight like heroes, but heroes fight like Greeks!" (Winston Churchill - attributed)
  • Much better than the war museum in Athens.
  • Nice museum.
  • Great for greek history, but a few of the exhibits are only descriped in greek
  • Nice museum

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.
