Reviewed December 30, 2012

Not much historical info within the castle but the views are great and it is fun to just poke into the many varied spots.

“Quite the work-out!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

I still can't believe that i managed to climb the 900 steps to the top! But it was worth it...started out early in the morning before it got too sunny and made several pit stops not only to catch my breath, but also take pictures. The trek up offers the best view of the town....and it is certainly a breath-taking and picturesque town!!! The castle itself is only ok but still worth a visit.

Just make sure you're fit!

“A beautiful place”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

A historical and magical place, with beautiful views of the city. It is well maintained in the first bastions, but when we move to the Bastion of Achilles, the bush is growing and there is no maintenance.

“The view takes your breath away”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

The breath-taking views of the town, the bay and the coastline from the top were out of this world! Even if you find the climb up the 900 or so steps irksome and can make it only upto the middle of the hill, the views are well worth the effort. The castle by itself may not be anything to die for, but the photographs you shoot from up there can be priceless!

“The best thing to do in Nafplio...”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Amazing castle on top of the hill. You can trek the 880 steps up but we were too lazy and opted to drive up to the gates. The castle was an amazing maze of stone passages, all leading to amazing panoramic views of the city and the sea. We were there when the rain clouds started to blow in, and it was a magical experience watching the sunshine transform to dark ominous clouds before we descended.

A most memorable experience.
