Immerse into the archaeological Greek Heritage, famous ancient sites and UNESCO Monuments in this unique, private, full-day tour. Your knowledgeable professional driver picks you up with one of our luxury cars and you travel to your first stop at Corinth Canal, an awe-inspiring engineering miracle.
After the canal, you pass by the vast orange groves and tiny churches along the road, and you reach the hill where the imposing ruins of the citadel of Mycenae, lie. There are two main visiting places, the vast kingdom of Mycenae and the alleged Tomb of Agamemnon, a cyclopean masonry architecture as well as the very interesting local museum.
After Mycenae, your driver will take you to Nafplion, a beautiful Venetian medieval port town with three impressive castles (Bourtzi, Palamidi and Acronafplia) and picturesque small alleys with local craftsmanship. Have fresh fish or Greek cuisine for lunch in Nafplion or at the beautiful seaside village of Tolo.
Finally, walk at the most impressive and fully functional ancient theatre of Epidaurus located within the archaeological site of the Sanctuary of Asklepios, visit the small on spot museum and return to Athens with a memorable full day of Greek experiences!
After a short while, we will arrive at Mycenae. Mycenae (Μυκήνες, Μυκήναι) was an ancient city of Argolis and across the Argolic Gulf. The archaeological site of Mycenae is located about 120 kilometres southwest of Athens, in the northeastern Peloponnese.
Admire the city from high up by climbing almost 999 steps leading to the imposing castle of Palamidi (Palamidi is the fortress in Nafplion which was built in 1687 by the Venetians).
It is the most charming town in the Peloponnese and one of the favourite destinations for the weekend all year round. After enjoying the beautiful atmosphere of Nafplion you will have time to eat Greek food in local restaurants.
The ancient theatre was built by the architect Polykleitos the Younger according to Pausanias. Pausanias praises the theatre for its symmetry and beauty. With a maximum capacity of 13000-14000 spectators, it housed musicians, singers and dramatic contests which included the cult of Asclepius. Also used as a means of treatment for patients, as it was believed that the viewing of dramatic performances has beneficial effects on the mental and physical health of patients.
