Places of interest
Attractions Bourtzi island fortress:
This defines the postcard view of Nafplion by the sea. This, and the hill the town's houses and period buildings climb, create the unique picture of the town. The little island "Bourtzi" at the entrance of the port was fortified with cannons during the Middle Ages.
Built in 1471 by Antonio Gambello, an architect from Bergamo.
From 1930 until 1970 it was run as a hotel (perhaps we will re-open it one day). There are tours to the islet that leave from the harbour wall area.

Akronafplia fortress (where Nafplia Palace Hotel sits) - rises from the old part of town - it is the oldest of Nafplio's castles.

Palamidi castle:
Built by the Franks, completed by the Venetians.
The Fortress was built during the Second Venetian Period (1686-1715) and is 216 meters high.
You can take the road up the hill, or brave the 999 stairs (it's not so bad on a cool day - a bottle of water is advisable!)
From the top you can see the Argive plain and across the gulf of Argos or towards the Aegean.
