Hiking to the Secret Path of Palamidi Castle

An Absolute Family Friendly Adventure in the City of Nafplio

Nafplio is one of the most picturesque cities in Greece and a top weekend destination for Greek families, who intend to combine learning with pleasure. Marked by the Bourtzi Castle, built on the small islet of Agioi Theodoroi, Palamidi built on the 216-meter-high hill and Acronafplia, Nafplio can teach you the history of Greece. An alternative way to explore its history, nature and secret paths is hiking to the secret path of Palamidi Castle! 

While in Nafplio, you cannot miss the castle of Palamidi, where you can learn more about modern Greek history, and relish the views of the sunset. This hiking tour to Palamidi takes us first through corners and alleys, which may not be so easy to find as a tourist. Then we continue along a forgotten path that leads us directly up to Palamidi Castle. Arriving at the castle we visit it and optionally we have a guided tour in it by licensed guide. Then we descend the normal way (999 steps wait for us) with a beautiful view of the city, ending up back at the starting point.

To plan your trip in Nafplio with kids, you are recommended to advise the MAMAKITA tried and tested family vacation itineraries, and check all Argolis-based MAMAKITA kid-friendly activities.
