Nafplio, Nafplio

Greece's insider take:

Nafplio is a pretty seaside town that makes a great home base for visits to the ancient sites (although it can get crowded on weekends). After the establishment of the modern Greek nation, Nafplio was the capital for a brief period (1821–1828), hence its impressive neoclassical civic buildings and the statues of revolutionary figures. The town also contains two hilltop Venetian fortresses, a 13th-century castle on the small island of Bourtzi, and a lovely promenade that runs midway along the cliff on the south side of the peninsula.
