NAFLION - CORINTH - EPIDAURUS - MYCENAE TOUR
The chosen tour gives you the opportunity to enjoy a day in the Greek countryside and visit sites of great importance such as Nafplion, ancient Corinth and Mycenae. You will be able to see the origins of great civilizations that contributed to the Greek culture along with the Athenian, in the middle of a beautiful natural scenery.
Our first stop will be at the Corinth Canal, which divides Peloponnese from the mainland of Greece. The attempts of the opening go back in the ancient times but it was realized in 1893, proving that Greece was a modern country, capable to sustain projects like this.
After our short stop we will visit the archaeological site and the museum of ancient Corinth, which stands at the shadow of Acrocorinth. Acrocorinth is the acropolis of ancient Corinth, a monolithic rock that stands 575 meters over the ancient city of Corinth. Before wander around ancient Corinth, the small but significant museum will give a taste of the city’s advanced civilization. The art, such as mosaics as long as ritual and everyday items show a very refined culture for you to discover. Then the art will come alive as you will walk among great architectural structures such as the temple of Apollo, and Bema, the place where St. Paul stood and talked to the people about the new religion. Next stop is the acropolis of Mycenae. There you will witness one of the greatest civilizations in Europe that has its roots in the Neolithic Era. The tombs of the kings, and the remains of the walls along with the famous Gate of the Lions, stand there and amaze us for centuries. The museum findings complete the picture of this great’s civilization’s contribution as you will see tasteful art and jewelry but also weapons and war equipment. Our tour’s last stop is the Nafplion where you will be able to enjoy your meal before wander around the town. Nafplion’s contribution to Greek history starts in ancient times when it was a port and reaches its peak when it became the first capital of modern Greece. You will admire the neoclassical architecture and the Castles surround the town such as Palamide, Bourzi and Akronaflplia ant then we will drive back to Athens. We will make sure that you will make the most of it always according to your interests.
In Argolis region there is also the ancient theatre of Epidaurus located in the sacred Askleipieion. The theatre astonishes the visitors with its acoustics but it also shows the Greek’s level of knowledge of the human soul. The site that it is located in was dedicated to Asclepius the god of the doctors and was also used as a hospital and a research’s center. Scriptures indicate that ancient science was more advanced than we can imagine.
Allow us to offer you the possibility to exchange any of the sites mentioned above with Epidaurus. Unfortunately the distances don’t allow us to see them all but please feel free to make the combinations that you prefer, we will be more than happy to accommodate you.
