Nafplio

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  Peloponnese  /  Argolis Region  /  Nafplio
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.

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.
