Hotel Amalia Hotel Nafplio

The historic, beautiful town of Náfplio took its name from Náfplios, son of Poseidon and was the first capital of modern Greece. A powerful naval state during the Mycenaean age, it was conquered in turn by Byzantines, Venetians, Franks and Turks. Náfplio expands between the twin fortresses of Palamídhi and Akronafplía on the headland.

There is ample pleasure in wandering along its cobbled narrow streets lined with Neoclassical buildings. The Palamídhi, Náfplio’s principal fort, Boúrtzi, the third fort occupying the Ayíou Theodórou islet offshore from the harbour, and the church of Áyios Spyrídon, where the first prime minister, Ioánnis Kapodhístrias was assassinated, are places of special interest. One should not neglect to see, Platía Syndágmatos (Constitution Square), the main square of the old town, as well as the Archaeological Museum, in a Venetian mansion.

The hotel is situated among 3 World Cultural Heritage Monuments by UNESCO. a.Tiryns (Tírynthos) (80km). The undeniably impressive fortress is over three thousand years old, and the site itself has been occupied for four thousand years before that. The walls formed of huge Cyclopean stones dominate the site. The German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann uncovered Tíryns in 1884. b.Mycenae (22km).

The region is one of the longest occupied in Greece, with evidence of Neolithic settlements from 3000 BC. Make sure you visit the famous Lion Gate, the Treasury of Atreus or (as officially called) Tomb of Agamemnon, with its startling tholos.
