Photographer's Note

One more photo, taken at the same evening as two of my previous posts ( Nafplio sunset and Nafplio nights ) from Palamidi castle, after a "climb" of 999 stairs. The title comes from one of the most famous novels by Francis Scott Fitzgerald, published in 1934.

*MORE PHOTOS FROM NAFPLIO*

I hope that you wouldn't mind if I copied one of the "old" notes:
"Nafplio , is not just a perfect destination for romantic "escapes" from Athens, but also a town with great history and great architectonic importance. In the old part of the town you can see some great examples of Venetian architecture, some islamic monuments from the Ottoman Era and some beautiful Neoclassical buildings. You can also see 3 beautiful castles , Bourtzi, on the little island that you can see in the middle of the Gulf, Akronafplia on the small peninsula that you can see on the left of the photo and the magnificent Palamidi , from where I took the photo. (...)

Nafplio, was the first capital of Greece (before Athens), after the liberation of the country from the Ottoman empire. It is the town, where the first Governor of Greece, Ioannis Kapodistrias, was murdered.

Very close to Nafplio you can find many, very important archaelogical sites, like Mycenae and Tiryns (World Heritage Sites by UNESCO), the Acropolis and the ancient theatre of Argos (often refered as the most ancient city of the world still existing) and the world famous Ancient Theatre of Epidavros."
