“The climb up 900 plus steps to the top of this historic fortress is worth it if you love stunning views. The Venetians built it in 1686. What’s fascinating is it was so well designed all attempts to conquer it were unsuccessful. Until the Greeks came and managed to take it over in 1822 during the Greek Revolution, surprising the world at the time. Independence was won against the Ottoman Empire. Greece was a new free state. Nafplio was named capital.”

“The low hill of Tirynth, in the 8th kilometer of road Argos-Nafplio, was continuously inhabited from the Neolithic Age to Late Antiquity. In prehistoric times, the area flourished mainly during the early and late Bronze Age. In the second phase of the EH era (2700-2200 BC) a major centre with dense population and a unique construction circular building, 27 meters in diameter, must have been here on top of the hill.                    During the Late Bronze Age, Tiryns fortified hill gradually and surrounds within the "Cyclopean" walls of the palace complex and other buildings used primarily by the ruling class as places of worship, warehouses and workshops as well as residences. In historical times, Tiryns, although it should have been in the form of an organized political community, could not compete with Argos, which destroyed it, in the first half of the 5th century, exiling its inhabitants. Opening hours for the Archaeological Site: Monday - Sunday 8:00 to 20:00”

“Ample servings of homemade delights in a convivial restaurant adorned with antique oddments. The mezedhes (appetisers) – zucchini balls, feta with honey, tzatziki etc – are particularly good. As are the meat dishes, including the slow cooked pork belly. If meat isn't your thing, it has some fabulous contemporary-style salads as well.

“In recent years the Fougaro has become a new modern landmark. The word means smokestack and the place was once a tomato canning plant with a big one. It’s been smartly and impressively renovated into a creative arts and cultural space perfect for taking in some local artwork, relaxing with a lovely meal or for sipping a coffee. There are all kinds of neat community events going on for all ages including workshops, book readings and concerts, just check the website to see what is new.”

“Among Nafplio's most sophisticated restaurants, guests come here for the status – and visitors after Greek fare will need to head elsewhere. Its focus? High-end meats. Think the likes of Australian waygu, Dutch veal, American Black Angus steaks, New Zealand grass fed tenderloin. But with that, high end prices.”
