This trip takes you out of Athens and into the open countryside to explore. Beyond the hustle and bustle of the big city, you'll find an array of ancient sites and lesser-known treasures including the Homeric city of Mycenae, the charming seaside town of Nauplion and the remarkable ancient theatre at Epidauros.
Take the wonderfully scenic coast road along the Saronic Gulf to the Corinth Canal, which connects the Aegean and Ionian seas. Then it's on to Mycenae, the Homeric city of Atreides, described by the ancient poets as the city 'rich in gold'. Here you'll be guided around its treasures, such as the Lion's Gate, the Cyclopean Wall and the Royal Tombs.
After lunch, we'll journey through the fertile plain of Argolis, headed for Nauplion a picturesque town nestled at the foot of a cliff and crowned by the ramparts of the Palamidi Fortress. Last stop is a trip to Epidauros, to visit the fourth-century BC theatre, famous for its astonishing acoustics.
