We took the +900 steps stairs up to the top. In the morning most of the stairs are in the shade. The walk is approx 15 minutes but well worth it. At the top it's a fantastic view and an interesting story about italians, turkd and greeks and how they all battled about Nafplio.

so you can climb the 999 steps to the top (and wheeze along with everyone else) but if you're not feeling so energetic, take the city tour bus up t the top. stunning views and a great place to explore

Lots of history and sweeping views. Be sure you wear non-slippery walking shoes because the cobble stones are polished from years of walking or galloping on them and the paths are on a slope.

Quite a few steps but it's possible to get up in 10 minutes-20 if you taking pictures during. View really worth seeing.

999 stairs but it was expected - take water, comfy shoes and make regular stops on your way up! The view from the top is magnificent

My wife and I walked up the 999 stairs. It was a bit rough, but we really enjoyed it. We managed to get to every one of the 8 bastions. Every view has something different. Bring water and wear sun protection!

The view from the top of the castle is fantastic! The ticket is 4 euro for adults and 2 euros for students. We climbed the stairs but didn't really count the stairs, so I don't know how many stairs there are actually. At first, we planned to take a bus up, but we couldn't find the bus. So, we decided...

We opted to take the senic walk along the shoreline from the port around to a local beach, then climbed 850 steps to the castle. 40 minutes to get up, 20 coming down. Be sure to take water, as there is only water in the sinks in the bathrooms up top. The views and castle were amazaing and definately something... More
