The most beautiful towns in mainland Greece

Gytheio ● Ioannina ● Kavala ● Nafplion ● Xanthi ● 25 August 2017
 

Greece is not only its stunning islands. Mainland Greece has also many beautiful towns that have kept their traditional character. Well-preserved old towns, a medieval atmosphere and the feeling that you have travelled back in time give these towns a great asset, which makes them popular touristic destinations.


Nafplion

Nafplion is the most beautiful town in Argolis, in eastern Peloponnese. In a close distance to Athens, it is ideal for a romantic weekend. The medieval atmosphere, the nostalgic aura of the Old Town with the narrow paved streets, the cobblestone promenade, the fish taverns by the sea and the cosmopolitanism of this small city make Nafplion one of the most popular towns in southern Greece. Here, you have many things to do, like visiting the Palamidi Fortress and the Castle of Mpourtzi or swimming in one of the beautiful beaches nearby.

In the castle, you can see the outer wall, the citadel with the mosque and the old, walled town of Ioannina, one of the best-preserved old towns in Greece.
