A little bit of Italy comes to Nafplion in this delightful shop. It serves delicious espresso, but even that takes second place to what many regulars consider to be the best ice cream in Greece. Sometimes it seems that the Athenians who flock to Nafplion on weekends come only to stop here to try yet another flavor.

Get ready for a wait. This popular gelateria is always crowded, and since the owners are so generous with samples, getting your own cone can take a while. It's worth it though, as this Italian-owned gelataria is the real thing, serving up creamy treats as good as any you'd get on the boot. We're partial to the hazelnut and the pistachio, but there are dozens of others we haven't gotten to try yet (there's a huge selection). Another reason to head back, we suppose!
