Citadel of Acronauplia : Michelin's recommendations
This is a spot for romantics and photographers, with superb views of the town, the Argolic Gulf and the surrounding countryside. The citadel of Akronafplía consists of several wards corresponding to four successive periods. The first two, through which one enters, are by the Venetians: Castel Toro, erected c 1450 (now a hotel) and the Grimani bastion, built in 1706. Further on lies the Frankish section and, at the tip of the promontory, the Byzantine section constructed over the remains of ancient fortifications.
