    Nafplio

    March 13, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    Our stop for lunch. Was the first capital of Greece
    A little sea bass, olives,bread, some wine some calamari followed up with some gelato. All good. Beautiful day out sunny mid 70’s., Very nice town square for strolling. Little street kids came up looking for handout. I noticed my phone was lying on the table - all they had to do was grab and run and that would have been the end of that - they definitely had their eyes on it! They later went over to pester the old man sitting outside of the restaurant (see in pic below).

    Nafplio (Greek: Ναύπλιο) is a seaport town in the Peloponnese in Greece that has expanded up the hillsides near the north end of the Argolic Gulf. The town was an important seaport held under a succession of royal houses in the Middle Ages as part of the lordship of Argos and Nauplia, held initially by the de la Roche following the Fourth Crusade before coming under the Republic of Venice and, lastly, the Ottoman Empire. The town was the capital of the First Hellenic Republic and of the Kingdom of Greece, from the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821 until 1834. Nafplio is now the capital of the regional unit of Argolis.
