Palamidi is a wonderful fort lingering over the historical city of nafplio, the first capital of Greece. It offers unobstructed view of the Argolis bay and its pebbled windy paths take the travellers in a wonderful journey in the past. Don't forget to visit the...More

There's not much to see at the Palamidi other than all of the walls and fortifications and of course the most outstanding view around. Still after visiting Monemvasia and the Venetian fortress there, it was particularly interesting to visit the Palamidi. We took about an...More

We climbed to Palamidi Castle on a warm Greek afternoon and were rewarded for our efforts. The views of Nafpoli are stunning from this vantage point. The history is less significant as you stroll through the buildings. There were a few places we avoided because...More

There were four of us over age 70 who climbed to the top. The key is to go slow and in the off season when it’s cool and the tourists are few. I’m afraid of heights, but with a wall for the majority of the...More

Others have it right. 30 minutes is a good estimate. Two in our group paused for breath every couple of minutes, but that was welcomed for viewing and grabbing snaps. Comfortable shoes and water are smart choices.
