Could this be Greece's national hero Kolokotronis?

No he is Staikos Staikopoulos!
He was a great hero of the 1821 Rebellion against the Ottoman Empire.
He was the first to raise the Greek flag at the Palamidi (the castle you see at some pics on top of the hill)!

Honestly Summer is a wrong time to go there. It's so hot and there is noıthing to do under this sun. But at the cool weather, city can be a romantic place to visit. Honestly hitorical athmosphere is very well, and well protected. But although it is beside the sea, there is no relationship between city and the sea.

Nauplion seems like a place to relax then. Play tavli, go for a walk through the attractive streets, read a book at a cafe etc. It looks like there are boating activities as well.

An aerial I found
