The sightseeing tour of the Argolis region reveals an intriguing aspect of Greek history. Greek treasures have been unearthed in the ancient city of Mycenae which dates back to the second century B.C.

The historic town of Nafplion, one of the prettiest towns in Greece, is rich in natural scenic beauty.

The ancient theatre of Epidaurus, which could accommodate more than 2000 spectators, continues to host plays and festivals while the Corinth Canal shortens the voyage from the Adriatic to Piraeus by around 300 kilometres.

For history buffs, this tour of Agrolis promises to captivate.

Our tour great was well informed and interesting. Our bus broke down on our return back to the city. We had to wait an hour for a replacement bus. Basically told by the tour...

Itinerary

An English-speaking guide will accompany you on this tour.

The journey will take us via the national highway to the Corinth Canal where you will take a short photo stop. The famous Corinth Canal connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf.

Stunning landscapes accompany you all the way to Mycenae. The city Mycenae on the Peloponnese peninsula, once thought to exist only in ancient Greek legend and the epic poetry of Homer, is a must-see. The entrance to the ancient city of Mycenae is through the impressive Lion Gate, so named because of the two lions carved over the entrance.

Visit the archaeological site and the tomb of Agamemnon (optional stop for souvenirs). The fascinating remains of the palace and its Cyclopean walls, the gate of the lions and the treasury of Atreus will leave you a lasting impression.

After lunch, your next stop will be Nafplion, the first capital of modern Greece with its Venetian fortress of Palamidi and the fortified islet of Bourtzi. Nafplion is one of the prettiest cities in Greece. It boasts of a spectacular waterfront, small streets, historic buildings and elegant Venetian houses.

Afterwards, you will continue to Epidaurus and visit the Ancient Theatre, world famous for its outstanding acoustics. The theatre, which originally could accommodate about 2000 spectators, is still functional enough for plays to be presented.

Return to Athens by driving along the coastal road of the Saronic Gulf.

At the end of the tour you will be dropped back at the tour’s starting point in Athens.
