Take a leisurely drive along the coastal road of the Saronic Gulf to the Corinth Canal, where there will be a short stop to see the narrow waterway, before proceeding to Mycenae, an archaeological site of great interest. Here, you will see the Lions Gate, erected during the 13th century BC and the only remaining monumental piece of Mycenaean sculpture.

During this part of your tour, your local guide will give you an interesting description of the examples of Cyclopean masonry found in the walls of Mycenae and the Grave Circle A, which is a 16th-century BC royal gravesite, notable for a series of gold death masks, arms, and gold and silver cups excavated there.

From here, you will travel to the picturesque seaport town of Nafplion, once the capital of the First Hellenic Republic and of the Kingdom of Greece.

Finally, before returning to Athens by the National road, you will take a half hour drive to the great Theater of Epidaurus. Built in 340 BC, it has been so well-preserved that it is still used today for dramatic theatrical performances and concerts.

During your private full day tour, you will stop for lunch in Mycenae or Nafplion.

Please note:

  • It is highly recommended to wear shoes with rubber soles when visiting any archaeological site in Greece. Expect uneven surfaces and some steep inclines.

  • Check with your Virtuoso Travel Advisor for holidays or week days where museums and archaeological sites may be closed.
