Nafplio, Greece

Nafplio is Venetian-like town on the coast of the Peloponnese, a region in Greece. The town was also Greece’s first capital in the early 19th century.

Nafplio reminded me of an Italian town, with its stone buildings and brown roofs, The town is picturesquely located by a harbor with two castles perched on cliffs nearby. I climbed up the hill to Palamidi Castle for the best view of Nafplio. I was amazed how clear the water was--and this is not even the Greek islands!
