Now you are on to Mycenae, the fortified royal residence of King Agamemnon, leader of the Trojian War. The mighty citadel is surrounded by huge Cyclopean walls. Entrance to its Acropolis is through the famous Lions Gate, which symbolize the power of the kings of Mycenae, "a city rich in gold" according to Homer. Beyond the Lion's Gate is the stairway leading to the Palace complex, the grave circle with six royal tombs, the courtier's houses, sanctuaries, and other important buildings. Outside the walls are the beehive tombs, the largest of which is the so-called "Treasury of Athens," ruins of private houses and a grave circle with 14 royal tombs and 12 tombs of private citizens.
Your next stop is Nafplion, the first capital of Greece after the 1821 Greek revolution. This is a great place for relaxing and enjoying a meal in a traditional Greek restaurant. Afterwards, head to the ancient theatre of Epidaurus, your last stop. Epidaurus, a small city in ancient Greece, was home to the most celebrated asclepieion (healing temple) of the Classical world. The prosperity brought by the asclepieion allowed the town to construct a number of monuments, including the huge theater that still exists today.
