Nafplio or Anapli is a seaport town in the Peloponnese in Greece that has expanded up the hillsides near the north end of the Argolic Gulf, the capital of the regional unit of Argolis, seat of the municipality of Nafplio and the main port of the eastern Peloponnese. It also served as the first capital of Greece.
