Top 5 Things to Do in Nafplio

1. Visit Bourtzi Fortress

Take the taxi boat from the harbor front promenade and cross over to mid-port Venetian fortress that offers amazing views to the old town.

2. Climb the 999 steps to Palamidi Castle (in reality, there are only …913).

Don’t forget your camera as the views are simply amazing. Like to cheat? Take the hop-on/hop-off city tour bus and get to the entrance of Palamidi Castle on the other side of the hill and exit from the west side to climb down the stairs. The same amazing views with only half the effort.

3. Tour the old town on a Funbike

4. Ride on the city tour train

The ride takes you through parts of the old town and to the Bavarian Lion, an impressive real-size sculpture created on the slope of a small hill in the new part of town that you’ll likely miss unless you make the ride.
