Corinth

Leaving Athens behind we drive on the coastal road towards the West.  Our first stop, after  one hour, is the Corinth Canal. There we’ll make a short stop, enough to see the Canal,  take photos and visit the local cafeteria. Twenty minutes later we’ll arrive at the small town of Ancient Corinthwhere we’ll visit the archaeological site with the unique monolithic Temple of Apollo and the Bema from where St. Paul preached and the museum.

Argolis - Mycenae

Driving afterwards through the hills of Corinth, among thousands of olive trees and vineyards, we’ll arrive at the prefecture of Argolis where we’ll visit the archaeological site of Mycenae.
Mycenae, ‘Rich in Gold’, was the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon who dominated the Aegean Sea after the distraction of the Minoan Empire.  Its elevated position and its huge Cyclopean Walls offered protection from surprise attacks by pirates and enemies. Outside the fortress lie the impressive beehive tombs including that ascribed to Agamemnon also known as the Treasury of Atreas.

Argos-Nayplio

After concluding our visit to Mycenae we’ll drive through the plain of Argos among endless farms of orange trees and forty minutes later we’ll arrive to the picturesque town of Nafplion (First capital of modern Greece from 1829 to 1834).
Nafplion is the most ancient city in Greece. The city lies under the imposing rocks of Palamide the most formidable Venetian castle in the Eastern Mediterranean.  The smaller Castle of Acronafplia (where the ancient city was founded) crowns Naflion and at the entrance of the harbor, in theArgolic Gulf, there is yet another, third Castle Bourtzi, situated on a small islet.

Day 2 - Epidaurus theatre

Leaving Nafplion and driving through the winding roads of Argolis we are going to visit Epidaurus, famous for its ancient Theatre and the sanctuary of Asclepios. The sanctuary of Asclepios was a healing centre as well as a cultural centre in ancient times.  Epidaurus was built around the 4th Century B.C. and has a multitude of buildings most famous of which is the ancient Theatre of Epidaurus. The Theatre of Epidaurus is still in use today and hosts carefully selected theatrical plays, concerts, and festivals during the summer.
