Itinerary

8:30 am Departure

VehicleWe pick you up at the Port or Airport or your Hotel in Athens at a convenient early morning time.

Day 1 Corinth Canal

Start your tour with an early morning pick up from your residence and set off towards the Peloponnese peninsula. Driving for about an hour we reach our first stop at Corinth Canal. The Canal is an awe-inspiring and man-made engineering miracle, six and a half km long, separating the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea. Because of its width, only small and narrow cargo and cruise ships still make a voyage through the canal regularly. 

Admission is free

DAY1UNESCO Sanctuary of Asclepios at Epidaurus

Leaving Corinth and going deeper into the Peloponnese, we reach 75 minutes later the stunning Sanctuary of Asclepios at Epidaurus, a UNESCO listed site.
The theatre of Epidaurus represents the finest and best-preserved example of a classical Greek theatre. At the site you will visit:
the vast ancient theatre (you can practice its notorious acoustics), the Tholos, the Stoa of Abaton, the Stadium and
the on-spot Museum.
Entrance ticket 12 euro per person

DAY1 Tolo, UNESCO Archaeological Sites of Mycenae and Tiryns,

After this fascinating site, we head to Tolo, a beautiful seaside village, well known for its fish and seafood, and where we will enjoy our fresh Greek lunch.

Next is a UNESCO site, the archaeological sites of Mycenae and Tiryns, the kingdom of famous Agamemnon, leader of the Greek army at Homer’s Iliad epic poem. The archaeological sites of Mycenae and Tiryns are the imposing ruins of the two greatest cities of the Mycenaean civilization, which dominated the eastern Mediterranean world from the 15th to the 12th century B.C.
Mycenae entrance is through the imposing Lion Gates, you walk by the graves of kings and the cyclopean architecture of Treasury of Atreus. A really powerful site.
Entrance Ticket: 12 euro

 

DAY1Nafplion Medieval Town

Finally, we set off of towards the medieval, seaside city of Nafplio, driving through dense orange and olive groves.

Nafplio is one of the most beautiful towns in Greece, the former first capital of the country, built in neoclassical architecture with narrow cobblestone alleys and surrounded by three formidable castles. You will walk on the main Syntagma Square with two old Turkish mosques, many cafes and little taverns and stroll at the promenade overlooking Bourtzi castle.

Olympia lies in the fertile valley of the Alpheios river and it was the most celebrated site of Ancient Greece. You will visit the museum and the famous archaeological site of the ancient Olympic Games.

As you stroll by the ancient paths you will see:

the Doric Temples of Zeus and Hera, the Bouleuterion, the Prytaneion, the Stadium, the Gymnasium, the Palestra, the Workshop of Pheidias and so many others.

At the museum, you will admire, among other masterpieces, the Nike of Paionios and the breathtaking Hermes and the Infant Dionysus statue.
