If you are in Nafplio you can't avoid Isitong the Palamidi Castle :) You can go to it climbing the hill by stairs or driving by car, we choose second option because of small children with us. There are many fortification buildings in the castle....More

Take the 999 steps from the village in the morning. Worth the time and the effort. Bring water and take your time

A very interesting place to visit with rich history. The view from up there is magnificent especially if you visit during sunset. Some parts of this place, if combined with history make you feel creepy. On the other hand, nobody seems to care about this...More

Nice walk up to Castle, great views. Took us 13 minutes to get up at decent pace. 12 minutes to come down. Closes at 18.45 so couldn't go in.

We loved touring Palamidi. They have information posted at regular intervals so we could read about it and know both ancient and recent history. You could see the whole city as well as the fortress in the bay--really a spectacular view. And you could go...More

It was worth the price of admission to see the castle and the spectacular views of the city and the sea! Definitely something you should do in this town.

This fortress is well worth a visit but the steep endless steps can put you off especially if it is hot. However there is a hop-on/hop-off bus which leaves from down in the main part of town, near where the cruise ships tie up and...More

This is one of three fortresses in Nafplio and probably the most interesting. Can be reached by taxi or by foot (999 steps,not for the faint of heart). Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes (closed toe preferably). Beautiful views of the city. No "real"...More

One of the highlights in Nafplion, you can either walk up many stairs to get there or get a ride. The view is amazing and very much worth the visit.

You can drive to the top where the castle itself is. Driving from center of Nafplion is about 10min. There are parking places but can get very crowded during popular days - times (i.e. Saturday - Sunday morning). From the... More
