Description

Uncover the archaeological and architectural wonders of Nafplio on this guided excursion that takes you back to the time of the city's Franco, Venetian, and Ottoman rulers. Hear stories about the city's dramatic history, from empire takeovers to modern murders, and visit the town's old port.

Start your day with a walk toward the Land Gate, where you can pass the weather-worn walls of the old city for up-close looks at the Church of Agios Spyridon's colonnaded tower, where you can look for the bullet lodged in the church's wall, leftover from the assassination of Greece's first governor.

Continue on to pick your way through the residents crisscrossing Syntagma Square. Make note of the Archaeological Museum, housed in an 18th-century Venetian arsenal building, snap photos of the mosque-turned-Parliament building Vouleftikon, created by the Turks in 1730, and then head to the old port for glimpses of the centuries-old Venetian fortress of Bourtzi, perched on the rugged shores of Agioi Theodoroi island.
