Great place to visit, big, excellent views

A lot to see if you want to visit all the sides, recommended. Nice, friendly and cheap terrace to have a drink, right before the entrance.

A fascinating place to explore. You can either drive to the top or walk up the nearly 900 steps. The view of Nafplio from the top is wonderful.

You cannot visit Nauplion without visiting Palamidi castle! Wear comfotables shoes and a hat, take a bottle of water and a camera with you and go! The castle can be reached by car- to the gate, then you have to walk and climb stairs to the top or you can try to climb all of the 999 stairs from the... More

Very large structure overlooking Nafplio. It is possible to climb stairs from Nafplio or reach it by car. Gorgeous view of the city and the sea. VERY SLIPPERY steps and stones - be careful!

It took about 25 minutes to climb the stairs, and we spent about 30 minutes at the top. It had some great views.

The town was the capital of the First Hellenic Republic, from the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821 until 1834. Nafplio is now the capital of the regional unit of Argolis

The view from Palamidi Castle is amazing - you can see all of Nafplio (both the older and newer sections) as well as the harbor and the Bourtzi fortress on the island. The fee to get in is very reasonable, and our teenagers climbed all over the stairs to get great pictures of the town. The castle itself does not... More
