Nafplion

The prettiest city in the Peloponnese, Nafplion enjoyed a brief spell as the first capital of Greece after the War of Independence. Guarded by two massive fortresses and a miniature floating castle, Bourtzi, it's a place to wander at will in the marble squares, waterfront cafes, and small museums. The architecture is testament to the Venetians, Turks, and Greeks who have shaped the city's chequered history. A handy base for forays to the wineries of Nemea, ancient Mycenae and Epidaurus.
