Argolis tour is a very interesting full-day tour to explore Argolis! The tour starts by driving via the coastal highway to Peloponnese. On the way, we’ll see the Saronic Gulf where the naval battle of Salamis took place between Persians and Greeks in 480 BC. The first stop of the tour to Argolis is the famous Canal of Corinth. Shortstop there to take photos and if we are lucky we might see a sailing boat going through the Isthmus. After the canal in about fifteen minutes, we are going to Ancient Corinth.
In Ancient Corinth, you will see the temple of Apollo (the God of Oracles and the Sun), the Theater, the Roman Odeon, the Glauke fountain, the Vima (step) from where St. Paul preached to the Corinthians in 52 A.D., and finally the Lechaion street. A visit to the Archaeological Museum which is known for its beautiful amphorae will impress you.
We continue our tour through the farmland of Nemea. we’ll see olive trees and vineyards and after thirty minutes of driving, we’ll reach the famous Mycenae, which was the Kingdom of King Agamemnon, and see the Lion’s Gate and the Agamemnon Grave, the Archaeological Museum, and the Cyclopean Walls. After Mycenae, We will visit the beautiful Nafplio, a really romantic seaside town, the first capital of Greece until 1834. The old town has classic stone-built buildings and picturesque streets. There a stop for a traditional Greek lunch is a must. After the lunch break the last destination before the way back to Athens is the Ancient Theater of Epidauros which was built in 4 B.C. very known in antiquity for the temple of Asklepios the god of medicine. The whole archaeological area is impressive, and you will admire the acoustics of the famous theater and also the museum.
