Just outside the Victoria Hotel and to the north is the start of our trip. Notice the Italian sounding store on the corner ...
Inside you've got everything Italian you could want. Run by two siblings from Italy, it's the place to go for your gelato.
Still hungry? Next door you can get your loukoumades (donut holes, honey puffs). See them hot and fresh (bottom central). Get them covered with honey or melted chocolate.
The main church is also close by.
Detail of the above. The entire interior is covered in art.
Karonis distillery makes Ouzo and they'll show you how they do it.
Let's wander the city. Get your exercise.
Statue of Kalliope Papalexopoulou. In the 1860s King Otto's authoritarian style and refusal to implement a constitution led to a revolt of which Nafplion was a leading center. Already a social leader of the city, Kalliope, now a widow, provided a center for the rebellion. When the royalist forces approached, their leader offered to grant her safe passage out of Nafplion. She sent back the message that "Kalliope Papalexopoulou has the honour to inform General Hahn that she fears nothing except mice."
Been a while since this one moved freight. While a rail line does go to Nafplio, and it seems well maintained, no train has run, or so I've been told, for years.
Statue of Angelos Terzakis. Born in Nafplio, he was a novelist and playwright, fought in WWII, then moved into management positions in Greek arts and was also a critic.
At the east side of the old city is a gate. Nafplio used to be a walled city with a moat surrounding it. And now you're on your own. Go back to the main page and explore some special aspects of the town.
