The events’ program includes various parallel cultural events. All participants will have the chance to enjoy a memorable sport experience while admiring the fort of Palamidi, one of the greatest achievements of Venetian fortification architecture in Greece, the impressive rocky peninsular of the Akronafplia and the spectacular Bourtzi, the fort on the sea that has become Nafplio's trademark.
