Nafplio has got to be one of Greece’s best-kept secrets. Only an hour and forty minutes outside of Athens, this beautiful, historical town by the sea, is the perfect escape from the city. (For an Athens itinerary check out this post here). Not crowded, with plenty to see and do over a long-weekend, you will be glad you visited. If you still need some convincing, let me show you 20 photos to inspire a visit to Nafplio!

So, what do you think? Did my photos inspire you to take a trip to Nafplio? I sure hope so! If you can’t tell, this place is absolutely gorgeous, and the pictures certainly don’t do it justice. Trust me, just go! You won’t regret it!
