Nafplio full day tour from Athens
We will start from Athens with destination Nafplio city. Nafplio is a city with thousands years of History.
It was the first Capital of Greece after country’s independance at 1821.
Our first stop will be Corinth Canal.The Corinth Canal connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island.
On our way to Nafplion we will visit Palamidi fortress.This fortress was a very large and ambitious project, but was finished within a relatively short period from 1711 until 1714. In 1715 it was captured by the Turks and remained under their control until 1822, when it was captured by the Greeks.
After that we will visit Akronafplia from outside , a Venecian style fortress and we will stare the breathtaking view of Argolic golf and have a lot of pictures.
Afterwards we will visit Nafplio city and more specificely the KAPODISTRIAS STATUE, THREE ADMIRALS SQAURE, the ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM and you will have free time in the old city to explore and buy souvenirs and gifts.
