Know More about this tour

DAY-1 From your Hotel, Cruise ship, Airport or other location, start your tour in comfort in one of our new model black Mercedes E-Class, AudiA6 or Mercedes minivan vehicles with full leather & free WiFi as your informative driver takes you West towards the Peloponnese with a short stop at the famous Corinth canal to learn of its interesting role in history before continuing to the archaeological site of Ancient Corinth. Depictions of grapes, vines and wine cups that adorned coins & artwork from Corinth attest to its importance in Ancient Greek life & Corinth was a significant point of trade and connection at the time with colonies and other regions importing wine & vines for cultivation. Under the shadow of the Temple of Apollo explore its streets, temples, workshops & markets in the footsteps of the ancients before continuing to the Namea region where Viticulture has been recorded for over 2000 years.

Arriving at our first winery (normally Domain Lafazanis) we join one of the skilled Oenologists for an hours private tour and tasting and with a ready palate take a short drive to the Medieval city of Nafplion. Enjoy wandering its pretty streets & lunch with the sea view to Bourtzi castle in the bay before continuing to our second winery (normally Domain Bairaktaris) chosen to expand on the range of the first and once again allowing you to experience the unique wines derived from the local varieties such as the aromatic Moschofilero & the noble Agiorgitiko. Finally, we arrive at the Western Peloponnese city of Patra to settle into your central 4-star or boutique hotel in the historic center of the old city of Patra and a perfect location from which to explore all the sights & sounds of Greece's third largest city & regional capital.

DAY-2 After breakfast we take the short drive to the hills above the city to the world famous Archaia Clauss Winery with magnificent views of the countryside and its surrounding vineyards. At the winery we will have a guided tour around its various historic buildings whilst the history of this winery is discussed and enjoy a sampling of the various wines produced with plenty of time to walk around the grounds and purchase from the winery shop if desired.

After lunch we continue eastwards to stop at the UNESCO site of Ancient Mycenae to visit the ancient citadel and its acropolis and see the Cyclopean walls, the Lion Gates, its streets & ancient buildings, and the Palace and impressive tomb of Agamemnon, leader of the Greeks against the Trojans. The Mycenian period, from 1600 to 1100 BC, in reference to this ancient city, indicates how important its influence was in early Greek civilization & our route provides a great opportunity to see yet another gem set in the Peloponnese to complete the highlights of our trip before returning you to your Athens Hotel or onward location.
