Also known as Nafplion, the small harbour town of Nafplio is considered by many to be one of the most attractive towns on the mainland. The architecture has been largely influenced by the former Venetian rulers, evident from the neo-classical mansions, elegant townhouses along the narrow streets of the old town and the spectacular Palamidi Fortress. Other highlights of the town include the archaeological museum, Akronafplia Fortress and the nearby island fortress of Bourtzi, located around 600 metres west of the port.

"I had a wonderful time on your Classical Greece Tour. It exceeded all my expectations. The itinerary was well thought out and included the most important sites of mainland Greece. The hotels were in excellent positions for exploring the sites and museums. Our tour guide, Marina, was amazing. Her personality was delightful. She was entertaining and her knowledge of the history and mythology of ancient Greece was truly remarkable; her passion for the places we visited brought them to life. It was a truly unforgettable experience. I had the best time ever! Thank you Cox & Kings."
