Corinth - Argolida

Journey: Corinth canal (Isthmus), Ancient Corinth, Acro – Corinth, Mycene, Nafplion, Epidavros and then we return back to Athens.

Our driver with his vehicle will be waiting at the exact spot that you have arranged according to the scheduled time of your appointment.

We start by heading out of Athens towards the Corinth Canal, which connects the Aegean with the Ionian Sea.

We continue our journey by visiting Ancient Corinth where you will get the chance to see the temple of Apollo and ruins of the ancient city of Corinth.

Our next stop will be Acro - Corinth where we shall visit the imposing castle on a natural acropolis towering 1,885 feet above the plain of Corinth.  On a clear day, the views from the summit are superb.  You will be able to walk around the castle where the ancient Corinthians organized their defence against all kind of enemies.

Our journey continues to Mycenae where we will visit the Royal Palace and the tomb of Agamemnon with the famous lion’s gate.

After that we head for the beautiful city of Nafplio, which was the first capital of Greece.  There we will walk around the city with its neoclassical buildings, its old historical churches.  You will also have the chance to have a meal in one of its many traditional tavernas.  Leaving Nafplio behind we will visit Palamidi situated on the city’s hill. This is where Theodore Colocotronis the leader of the Greek Revolution against the Turkish Empire in 1821 was imprisoned.

Our last stop will be at Epidaurus and the site of the ancient theatre of Epidaurus. The theatre is marvelled for its exceptional acoustics, which permit almost perfect intelligibility of unamplified spoken word from the proscenium or scene to all 15,000 spectators, regardless of their seating.

Finally our vehicle will return you to the exact spot from where you were picked up.

(Duration of the trip: 8-9 hours)
