A Day in Náfplio, Greece
A Day in Náfplio, Greece – you don’t want to miss this picturesque Greek town. It is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever been to. It is a great place to spend the day shopping and enjoying some gelato!
Today we are continuing my trip to Greece. I started the trip in Athens, and then we went to Poros. Today I am sharing my FAVORITE place – Náfplio, Greece. It was BEAUTIFUL. I could have spent the entire day photographing this picturesque town. My only regret is that we only had a few hours to explore before we had to head back to Poros. Náfplio is a great place to relax and so some shopping.
I went to Greece with a tour group, AHI Travel. I booked it through Auburn University. Our tour group was small. We had about 15 people on the tour. We had people from Auburn University, University of Missouri, and Western University. The trip was 7 nights in Greece. Two nights in Athens and five nights in Poros.
I really loved the tour group. I’ve already booked another trip with them for this year.
We arrived in Náfplio at lunch time.
We had lunch with the group and then free time to explore on our own.
View of the castle of Palamidi.
The fortress was built by the Venetians during their second occupation of the area (1686–1715).
Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to go up to the top.
I know the views of Náfplio would have been amazing!
This is my favorite photo from Náfplio.
It is the entrance to one of the shopping streets.
I blew this up and it is hanging in our house. LOVE it!
How cute is the entrance to this restaurant?
I loved the streets of Náfplio. SO beautiful.
Another view of castle of Palamidi.
I would love to come back and check out the castle.
This is a car rental place. SO cute!
We spent the time we had walking around and going into the shops.
We bought some olive oil and local honey in this shop.
I just used the honey this week on some Greek naan bread. It is SO good!
We finished the trip with some delicious gelato.
The owner was from Italy. I could really tell. The gelato was as good as what I ate in Italy.
We got a great view of Bourtzi Castle as we waited for our bus.
It is a Venetian castle in the middle of the Náfplio harbor.
I hope you enjoyed the quick photo tour of beautiful Náfplio, Greece!!
