The Fortress on the Acropolis overlooking the old town of Nafplio is fun to explore and makes an impressive backdrop to this fascinating city. As one of three fortresses that guard Napflio, the Akronafplia Fortress is often overshadowed by the larger Palamida fortress that looms...More

I liked this fortress, it is huge, strong built, it offers beautiful views. It is an important attraction point if you are visiting Napflio.

The fortress is a great place to take a photo wether it be of the castle from the promenade or the castle of the beautiful Nafplio. The castle is one of the most photographed landmarks in the Peloponnese, simply stunning.
