Nafplio, the first capital of Greece from 1821 to 1834.
The road parallel to the sea and the old town is now lined with Phoenix canariensis,tavernas, and coffee shops.
The trees and the setting sun shining on Palamidi, the castle, were very picturesque this sunny November day

We did consider having the MGS AGM there once in the past. It's a lovely town.

Talking about Cypress trees, we saw this one from the fortress of Palamidi, high above Nafplion
