Some of the spots you are going to visit:

The Land Gate

Start your exploration from one of the remaining Venetian gates leading to the medieval city situated close to the main bus station of Nafplio. The gate is known as the Land Gate and even though the walls are nowadays in ruins, the visitor can still imagine how the area used to be like. Just before the gate, a deep trench was securing the inaccessibility of Nafplio in case of a siege. A small retractable bridge open from dawn to dusk, allowed the inhabitants to access the walled old city. Architecturally, the gate is an ashlar stone arch, flanked by tower-like pilasters and crowned with the symbol of the Venetian Republic, a winged lion. The crest of the Venetian Grimani family completes the decoration of the Gate. Originally built during the first Venetian occupation of the city, the form it has today dates back to the beginning of the 18th century when it was redesigned by a French engineer. Numerous warfares resulted in the partial demolition of the gate but today after an extended restoration programme, the site stands as it was when first built.
