Pelopennese  Peloponisos
Nafplion  Nauplio
Although we'd spent two nights in Nafplion, we hadn't actually visited any of its attractions yet. Before checking out of our hotel, we drove up to the Palamidi fortress to see the ruins and a great view of the town and the gulf.
The fortress was built by the Venetians from 1711-1714, then conquered by the Turks in 1715. Kimberly in front of a staircase to the second story.
This is the view from the fortress above town.
Epidaurus  Epidauros
We stopped at the ancient theater of Epidaurus on our way back to Athens. The theater was built in the 4th century BC, and is still in use today. It seats 14,000 people.
The upper section of seats were added by the Romans in the 2nd century BC. We could hear the people in the orchestra from the top row of seats.
