Nafpaktos - Aetoloakarnania (Greece)

Nafpaktos is a lovely town with a beautiful Venetian fortress and about 20,000 residents. "Nafpaktos" literally means "building ships," because in ancient times ships were built here. During the Roman occupation Nafpaktos was very prosperous because of its location, right across the Peloponnesus. In 553 the city was completely destroyed by an earthquake. Other attractions include the Venetian harbor, traditional houses and stone paved streets. The home of the Greek hero Markos Botsaris is now a museum. The beaches of Grimbovo and Psani are scenic and the Rion-Antirion bridge that connects Central Greece with Peloponnese since 2004 is also a tourist attraction.
