“A workout, and a view to die for!”

Ranked #9 of 50 things to do in Nafplio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Venician fortress looms over Nafpoli. It is not classical Greece, but it is very cool. The 999 steps will probably make you sore, but who cares? Go jump in the Aegean afterward!

I've been in Nafplio several times, each and every I visit Acronafplia because it's simply amazing. You can have breathtaking beautiful views from the top for whole old town of Nafplio as well as feel some archeologic climate :)

For me the best view is from Clock Tower where you can take amazing pics!
Enjoy your time there...All for free!

You can actually walk here by going from the main square and winding your way up through all the stairs to the top. Or, conversely, walk back down. Not too much left of a fortress, though. We saw the remains of a rest stop restaurant, but it was. Closed. So, no water, no services. Long walk. Be forewarned.

and a fun way to see the town. The fort is fun, a good 20 minute visit is all that it is, but just right for our kids who were getting a bit tired of sightseeing!

The views of this fortress are breathtaking in any light. A photographer's dream backdrop or focal point.
