Naufplion, along with Monemvassia, are among the cities of the Peloponnese with the most character. Naufplion is much closer to Athens being only 2 hours distant.
The historic section of the old town of Naufplion is without doubt the best area to stay in as the newer is without much charm.
Naufplion also has a very large and well maintained medieval castle called Palamidi which you shouldnt miss!!
Naufplion is full of little quaint streets in its old quarter and the harbor area has plenty of benches and a good views. There are a lot of little stores and restaurants. If you spend the night anywhere in the Peloponnese do it in old Naufplion. There are several hotels and traditional pensions and inns but not enough in high season and Greek holiday periods. Its popular so better to book Naufplion in advance.
