You cannot go to Napflio and NOT visit this place. You can either go up the (nearly) 1000 steps ... or get a taxi up there. Either way its an inspiring place. Note : Its a little bit colder and windier up there. Obviously that's a good thing most of the year !

Very beautiful place with breathtaking views. You can walk up 1000 steps to get to the castle or you can drive up. You can explore around the whole castle. It is hilly and there are some old staircases and rocky areas which might not be for everyone. But if you can walk up the 1000 steps that's nothing. I really... More

It was worth it the trip from Athens. The city is beautiful with nice views from the castle and when you are up in the castle the views ate stunning and the state of the castle is very good.

We took the steps to this castle and were able to see the beautiful town of Nafplio on the way and from the top. I liked that we were able to explore everywhere in the castle. It is huge and the views were amazing. I was thinking we would walk up and take the road back but it was easier... More

You can either take a taxi up to the top or do it the old fashioned way and walk😃 The views whilst walking up and once you get up there are worth all the heavy breathing, stiff muscles etc. Fantastic views of the argolic gulf and the surrounding areas. We were lucky the day we went up as it was... More

We were on limited time so we drove to the top rather than taking the stairs. The view is beautiful and this site could easily be missed but so glad we didn't skip it.

This castle has so much history hidden within its walls and offers so many panoramic views. I must say, when in Nafplio, visit Palamidi.

Something different to do, apart from strolling and eating, when in Naflpio. If you are not in the mood to walk up the 999 steps leading to it, you'd better pay the 4 euro admission fee at the central gate, after parking your car just outside. The castle itself is well-maintained and much bigger than you would expect! There are... More

We did not walk but drove up there, due to some health problems, so probably missed some of the excitement. But still it is very worthwhile. Beautiful sea views from above, the ancient castle feel, rather big and with history to think about, for example even in new times it used to be a prison for death sentenced

Aside from the fortress itself (a marvel of engineering) which is worth seeing, the view from Palamidi is just amazing.
