The town of Nafplio, Peloponnese, is a place the Gods smile upon. The winding narrow streets of the
old Venetian town are paved with grey flagstones, the houses jostling each other for elbow room on either side.
Imagine shuttered windows, each  with a Juliet balcony attached, in various stages of elegant decadence. There’s a
new town too with all mod cons, but the restored beauty of the old draws the tourists. Photographs on this page
 show the intriguing streets, tavernas and shops of Nafplio. Also, as there are three castles in the vicinity, I have included
 stunning pictures of the Bourtzi, a perfectly preserved castle on an island in the bay, the fascinating Palamedi Fortress
 on a hill behind the town, and the ancient Acronafplio Fortress, parts of which date back to the Bronze Age.
