First stop...

The Argolis full day tour starts with a 45-mile drive on the National highway towards Peloponnese. We will reach the well-known Corinthian canal or else Isthmus canal that connects the Saronic Sea and the Corinthian Sea.

After a short stop for pictures, we will continue with a ten- minute drive through the orange and lemon tree fields and arrive at Ancient Corinth and its unique museum, the Temple of Apollo-the God of Oraclesand the Sun, the Roman baths and finally the Vima (step) from where St. Paul preached to the Corinthians in 52 A.D.


Next stop...

We leave Ancient Corinth and after a thirty-minute drive through olive and vineyards fields we reach at an imposing site on the top of a rocky hill located in the North East part of Peloponnese in Argolis, the ancient citadel of Mycenae.

We will continue the day with a 30-minute drive , through orange and lemon tree fields of Argolis plain , towards Mycenae.

Mycenae was the center of power in the Late Bronze age from 16th century B.C. to 11th century B.C. The Acropolis of Mycenae protected the royal families inside the famous Cyclopean walls. The Lion Gates, followed by a steep path through ancient buildings and pathways, will lead you to the Palace of the mighty leader of the Greeks against the Trojans, Agamemnon who was murdered by his wife Clytemnestra and her lover after he had returned victorious from the Trojan War.

Leaving the Acropolis of Mycenae we make a short stop on another hill opposite the Palace, visiting an impressive monument, the Treasury of Atreus also known as the Tomb of Agamemnon, followed by a scenic forty minute drive through orange and lemon tree fields of Argolis plain arriving at Nafplion, a picturesque seaport town near the north end of Argolis Gulf.



Nafplion became the first capital of modern Greece from 1829 to 1834 by John Kapodistrias, few years after the beginning of the Greek War of Independence (1821) against the Turkish custody. Nowadays Nafplion attracts a great number of travelers from all over the world and has become a popular day or weekend road trip for the Athenians.

During our visit in Nafplion, we will visit the Palamidi Castle, the last construction of the Venetian Empire, and the Acronafplia Castle, the walls of which date back to pre-classical times. These two castles are located on a hill above the old town. Nafplion.

We conclude our visit to Nafplion by having lunch at a picturesque restaurant by the sea enjoying the view of the Bourtzi Castle situated on a small islet in the Argolis Gulf at the entrance of the port. Or we can have lunch in Tolo-Nafplion, a seaside village in a traditional tavern by the sea with beautiful view.


Leaving Nafplion, we will continue our tour with a thirty-minute drive to ancient Epidaurus.

Epidaurus (3rd Century B.C), is a spiritual place worth visiting for its sites such as the Sanctuary of Asclepius and the ancient Theatre with its unique acoustics. The Sanctuary of Asclepius was a healing and culture center of ancient times and the Theatre of Epidaurus is one of the very few that retains its original circular Orchestra and it is a rare aesthetic sight, still used in our days.

Finally, we will drive back to Athens.
