Voyage to historic Grecian adventures
It’s perfectly normal to find yourself getting a little swept away by Nafplio, often cited as one of Greece’s most romantic towns. We say embrace the feeling and let yourself fall in love. (Whether it’s with the town, your partner, or a mysterious stranger is up to you.)
Graced with narrow streets, elegant Venetian homes, neoclassical mansions and plenty of sweeping views of the sea, Nafplio is easy on the eyes. Walk west from the harbor and pass through a rocky arch to discover a stunning view of the 18th century Palamidi fortress. If you’re feeling ambitious, climb the 999 steps (we counted) to the top.
To see even more of the picturesque countryside, head to the nearby towns of Mycenae and Cornith. The former features fantastic ruins that were discovered using Homer’s The Iliad, while the latter features a spectacular canal cut from the rocky shores.
And if you’re concerned that your Nafplio love is going unnoticed, pick up a strand of kombolois (worry beads), hand-crafted from amber, coral, and horn. There’s no guarantee that you’ll always leave your worries behind once your Azamara® voyage is over, but we promise these will make excellent souvenirs for family and friends back home.Download An Explorer Guide +
