The Tour Description

A day trip to Argolis is a perfect escape from Athens. We depart in the morning heading south, and enter the region of Peloponnese as we pass from the Corinth Canal. We make a short stop to admire and make photos of this great canal that connects the Aegean and Ionian seas.

We continue to Mycenae, which is one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. Mycenae was described as the ‘City rich in Gold’ in Homer’s epic poem Iliad. Such descriptions were matched once the Golden Mask of Agamemnon was discovered among many other treasures. Enter the ancient town from the Lion Gate and walk up to Agamemnon`s Royal Palace, as your guide explains the history and mythology of the site.

Our next stop is Nafplio, the first capital of the modern Greek state. We have lunch (optional) at a local restaurant and then stroll around the picturesque town, to see the Syntagma Square, the primary Parliament House of Greece and numerous other historic buildings.

We continue our trip with a visit to the theater of Epidaurus, still in use today and renowned for its amazing acoustics. In the antiquity, apart from a theater Epidaurus was a world famous medical and healing center. Temples dedicated to Apollo and Asklepeios are located here.

Following the same route we return to Athens and your hotel filled with images and memories from the rich Argolis region.
