Nafplio, a city famed for its narrow lanes and elegant architecture, provides a comfortable base for exploring the many surrounding ancient sites. International travelers and vacationing Athenians flock to this vibrant seaport, drawn by its romantic old town of mixed Greek, Turkish, and Venetian buildings. The town's unusual moniker comes from Nafplios, a hero of Greek mythology and the alleged founder of the original settlement. Today, most Greeks prefer to call Nafplios simply "Oraia," which roughly translates as "beautiful." Devote your undivided attention to the atmospheric old town, or set up camp in the city and spend your vacation touring the nearby villages, Venetian fortifications, and Byzantine churches. Nafplio is in Argolis Region. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Nafplio trip itinerary using our Greece trip planner.
