About this activity
After pickup at your hotel, cruise ship or Airport by your private & informative tour driver, set off for your first stop the impressive Corinth Canal.

Located at the narrow, strategic strip of land separating the mainland from the Peloponnese peninsula, the canal was dreamed of during ancient times but was finally finished in 1893. As you cross into the Peloponnese, your route takes you past olive fields and orchards, along the elevated and winding coastal road until you reach the remains of Ancient Corinth, one of the richest Greek city-states. Explore its well-preserved streets, markets, and the Temple of Apollo, among many other sites, and visit the museum, if you wish.

Next, continue your day trip to Mycenae, home to the citadel of the legendary Agamemnon, leader of the Greeks against the Trojans during the Trojan War. The ‘Mycenaean period,’ from 1600 to 1100 BC, references this ancient city, indicating its importance in Greek civilization. Your visit here provides a connection to development of the later classical period. Pass through the 20-foot-wide (6-meter) city walls, enter the Lion's Gate to Agamemnon's throne room, and explore the administrative and service buildings, tombs, and treasury of Atreus, as well as the on-site museum.

Then make the short drive to the historical seaport of Nafplio (or Nafplion), the first capital of Greece with a charming Venetian quarter nestled underneath the dominating hilltop castle of Palamidi. Here you can explore the town's many craft shops and have lunch at one of the seaside cafes or restaurants (own expense). After lunch, take another short drive through olive fields to the UNESCO-listed Sanctuary of Asklepios and first health center of the ancient world. The adjacent Theater of Epidaurus dates from the 4th century BC. A masterpiece of classical Greek architecture it is one of the most visited ancient sites in Greece.

Note: Your professional tour driver takes full care of you and provides historical, mythological, ancient, and modern information and context long the route. For expert accompanied guiding inside one or more of the sites visited by a professional licensed archeological guide, this can be provided on request (additional fee).
