A few words about the destination
Nauplia, the area where Nafplio is, was a major centre of civilization since Neolithic Times. In the Bronze Age, being the seaport of the plains in which Argos and Mycenae were situated was also of importance. Later on, during Classical Times, the area was deserted. Historically, the town itself was initially a holding of the Byzantine Empire until it passed to the French as a fief from the duke of Athens to the Enghien family in 1247.
