Description

The tour will begin with private pick up from your Athens Centrally located hotel by your guise. We will enjoy scenic drive via the coastal road from Athens towards the Corinth Canal. It will take about an hour to get to Corinth were we shall briefly stop to view it and stretch our legs before entering the Peloponnese peninsula. We will cross the bridge that connects the mainland with the Peloponnese, crossing over the narrow canal.

After the brief stop we will continue towards Mycenae; one of the most important cities of ancient Greece. We will walk under the famous Lion gate up to the Mycenaean acropolis and the Palace. Mycenae is very impressive as it is possible to feel the city as you retrace the steps of the ancients. We will see the tomb of Agamemnon and the ruins of the Cyclopean walls that protected this mighty city.

Our tour will continue with us driving through the plains of Argos towards the city of Nafplion. This was the first capital of modern Greece and boasts an impressive Venetian fortress the 'Palamidi'. Instead of walking up the thousand steps to the fortress, we will drive up and enjoy the view of Nafplio and the Gulf of Argolis. From here we will also see the islet of Bourtzi; on top of which stands a fortified castle which seems to be afloat in the middle of the bay of Nafplion.
Setting off from Nafplion we will drive towards the site of Epidaurus. Before reaching the site we shall stop for lunch at a local tavern and enjoy the regional cuisine. We will take our time at lunch and without hurry make our way towards the ancient site.

The site of Epidaurus, which is listed as a world heritage site by Unesco, is vast. With ruins of temples and hospital buildings devoted to the healing gods; it is considered to be the birthplace of Asklepios. The sites monuments, particularly the temple of Asklepios, the Tholos and the Theatre are considered some of the purest masterpieces of Greek architecture and date from the 4th century BC. For most travelers Epidaurus is known for the magnificent theater that still stands there – and is still used for plays and other performances. We will take the time to walk the grounds leading up to the theater and there we shall check the famous acoustics. The theater is considered a marvel of engineering as the acoustics are unrivaled even by today’s standards.

After our visit to Epidaurus theater we will walk down the pine filled site towards the exit where our driver will be waiting for us. We will make our way back to Athens and our tour will come to an end at our hotel.
