Τhe old town of Nafplio, with which you fall in love at first sight, offers you inexhaustible source for your well being and the ideal background for endless selfies. The perfect spots in Nafplio for Instagram lovers are here!
Wandering around my favorite city for over 10 years now, and having taken a few thousand photos, I've come down to two categories of "Instagramic" spots:
A. To the classic favorites, which never lose their charm and easily "win" the "likes" of the public.
B. To the unexpected, which are on your way where you least expect them and sort of obtain a more aesthetic philosophy.
Α. The "classic favorite spots" for the Instagram lovers are:
The iconic Palamidi castle, of course! From whichever side you photograph it, from Kapodistrias or from Philhellenon square upwards or - of course - if you have climbed up to the castle itself, endless photographic material awaits you!
The bougainvillea trees in every alley. Particularly those on the main pedestrian Vassileos Konstantinou street having Syntagma Square in the background or those outside the bright yellow walls of the Vyzantio Tavern, in Vassileos Alexandrou street.
The Bouboulina coastal road with the palm trees. Absolute symmetry in your frame and extra exoticism in the photo.
The joining of the sea and the sky at the end of Bouboulina str. -after the day's last coffee- near the lighthouse. Ideal at sunset...
A cone of ice cream. No matter how you photograph it (with a picturesque alley with bougainvillea flowers as background or just holding it in your hand), Nafplio much relates to ice cream.
The old doors in bright colors, with the old door knockers. You will find countless, in every pedestrian street of the old town or even upwards on the Psaromachala district.
On the steps of Potamianou street, outside the Grand Sarai hotel, with the incredible pomegranate color on the walls.
Up inside the Akronafplia walls, in front of the vaulted opening with the romantic railing and the view of the absolute blue of the sea.
Β. The "unexpected favorite spots" for the Instagram lovers are:
The old town photographed from a boat afloat or from Bourtzi.
The row of the characteristic changing rooms at the Blu Blanc cafe-restaurant, on the Arvanitia beach.
The abandoned Xenia hotel, at the "neck" of the peninsula of Akronafplia.
Taking your picture in the Town Hall Square (named the Three Admirals' square), with the tall palm trees framing the background.
In Karathona beach, but at its end, in the chapel of St. Konstantinos and Eleni, with the blue wooden tables outside, above the little harbor.
No matter how many times you photograph Nafplion or be photographed in it, each and every time you visit it, you will discover new ideal spots for perfect photos. Like, Like, Like in this city, which you never get enough of!...
