Explore Náfplion on a walk with your guide -- your chance to view the sites of Náfplion and experience a day in the life of the village. This is one of Greece's prettiest towns -- the narrow streets of the Old Town are filled with elegant Venetian houses and gracious neo-Classical mansions. The towering Palamidi Fortress dominates the entire setting.
Marvel at the beautiful buildings lining the port en route to Kapodistriou Square and Park, dedicated to the memory of the first Governor of Greece. In the park, with the beloved Palamidi in the background, is the statue of Koloktronis, known as the 'Grand Old Man of the Morea.' Koloktronis was the leader of the Greeks during the War of Independence. He besieged the Turkish-occupied Palamidi citadel for 15 months before it was finally surrendered back to Greece.
Across the way, you'll see the current Town Hall building, which began life as Greece's first high school.
