Seeing how beautiful the old town of Nafplio was during the day, we sure weren’t going to miss it at night. Romantic, atmospheric and just oh so damn pretty! How can one not fall in love with Nafplio?
After a full day of taking day trips to the nearby ancient ruins, we went back to our room in the beautiful 3 Sixty Hotel and Suites for a quick shower before exploring the old town at night. Our agenda was for me to take a lot of photos of course, have dinner and then drinks. All these aren’t so hard to do in the old town.
At night, the old town becomes a lot more charming. The small alleyways are lit by the restaurants and tavernas lined up on it. Combine this low lighting with the old architecture of the buildings around you – a romantic setting deemed fit for a date night with your beloved.
We had our dinner at To Omorfo Taverna which The Greek Mister chose as they serve kotsi, a slow-baked pork shank infused with lemon, olive oil and garlic marinade. I tried the dish myself but as much as I hate to say it, it’s not for me. The pork flavor was too strong for my taste buds. I guess I’ve lived in the Middle East for such a long time now that I am no longer used to the taste of the pork. The Greek Mister enjoyed it though.
I had chicken with pasta which I wasn’t able to finish as the serving was too big. The Greek Mister helped me finish it.
After the hearty meal, we walked around some more and found ourselves in the middle of Syntagma Square once again. We sat at the same bar we were at the day before to have a few drinks before heading back to our hotel room.
I loved how very relaxed and romantic our evening was. I also like the fact that you don’t have to try too hard to spend a perfect evening in the old town of Nafplio as the place itself is perfect enough for special evenings like what we had.
Here’s a video I made of our trip to Nafplio:
