Nafplio was the first capital of modern Greece, and is currently the capital of the prefecture of Argolida. It is situated 174km from Athens if one takes the Old Corinth-Nafplio National Road, and 160km if one takes the new Corinth-Tripolis National Road and the detour into Nafplio through Argos. Nafplio and the prefecture of Argolida are one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece with approximately 1.5 million visitors annually.
The town with its three castles, medieval and neoclassical buildings, stone pavings, and bougainvilleas cascading down internal courtyards invites us to explore its beautiful corners telling its history at each step.
