Know More about this tour

After pickup at your hotel, cruise ship or Airport by your private & informative tour driver, sit back & relax in one of our new Black Mercedes E Class, AudiA6 or Mercedes Minibus models with full leather & free Wifi as you set off out of Athens to see two of the most important sites in Greece.

After approximately 90 minutes we reach the UNESCO-listed Sanctuary of Asklepios with its on-site museum and Theater of Epidaurus, one of the most visited ancient sites in Greece. The temple and theater date from the 4th century and feature masterpieces of classical Greek architecture. Take all the time you need to visit this impressive site before a short 20 minute drive to the historical seaport of Nafplio (or Nafplion), the first capital of Greece, with a charming Venetian quarter nestled underneath the dominating hilltop castle of Palamidi. Here, your driver will be happy to provide an easy orientation of the most important central areas, and you can also explore the town's many craft shops before lunch at one of the seaside cafes or restaurants.

Continuing after lunch you'll head to Mycenae, home to the citadel of the legendary Agamemnon, leader of the Greeks against the Trojans during the Trojan War. The Mycenaean period, from 1600 to 1100 BC, references this ancient city, indicating its importance in Greek civilization. Pass through the imposing 20-foot-wide (6-meter) city walls, enter the Lion's Gate to Agamemnon's throne room, and explore the administrative and service buildings, tombs, and amazing treasury of Atreus, as well as the first class on-site museum before your return to Athens.

Note: Your professional tour driver takes full care of you and provides historical, mythological, ancient, and modern information and context long the route. For expert accompanied guiding inside one or more of the sites by a professional licensed archeological guide, this can be provided on request (additional fee).
