Welcome to Nafplio.
Nafplio is a location very close to Athens and actually one of the most beautiful towns in Greece. We got there on Monday around lunchtime for quick getaway from the stressful urban environment and to come a little closer to nature and the countryside. The town of Nafplio with its distinctive central paved square and the old city, is full of colors, old mansions and steps that lead you all the way to the highest part of the city. It feels nice to walk and wander.
Monday afternoon and you can tell immediately that the town’s pace slows down after a certain time. Shops close and after 17.00 there is hardly anyone walking around the streets.After watching the sunset and the view to Mpourtzi with the colorful sky, we enjoyed a delicious cocktail at Rosso, where the pedestrian street begins. We were intrigued by its blue color due to the Blue Curacao and the combination with our favorite rum, pineapple and limes.
A joyful way to end a beautiful day in a town as beautiful as Nafplio.
