Overview

By boarding on a fully air-conditionedvehicle you start your journey. Relaxing en route , we head for our first stop, Mycenae, a famous archaeological site in Greece, one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The archaeological excavations were undertaken by Heinrich Schliemann, a German merchant, world traveler, and archeologist.

After couple of hours of splendid drive across Peloponnese, you reach the Archeological site of Mycenae. You are welcomed by your professional guide to start the 1.5hour guided tour. You will admire the palace and the Tomb of Agamemnon as well as the famous Lion’s Gate.

Following the scheduled program, we head for the next stop, Epidaurus. After almost 1hour of drive ahead, we reach the famous Theatre of Epidaurus and Epidaurus Museum. The theatre of Epidaurus represents the finest and best-preserved example of a classical Greek theatre. Still in use today, the ancient monument floods with theatre devotees during the annual summer Festival of Epidaurus.

After these two guided visits, you will embark back on your vehicle to head for your last stop of the day, Nafplio city, the first capital of modern Greece. We stop at the port from where we admire the Fortress of Palamidi and the fortified island of Bourtzi.

Free time will be given in Nafplio city, before starting the return trip early in the evening.
