What you can expect
Escape the hustle and bustle of Athens and dive into Greece's rich history on this full-day guided tour to Epidaurus and Mycenae. Discover the remains of the ancient city of Mycenae, which served as a major centre of Greek civilisation; see iconic sites and visit the small village of Epidaurus.
Heading towards the Corinth Canal, you start your day with a scenic drive along the coastal road of the Saronic Gulf, before arriving at Mycenae, home to the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon. Explore the ruins of this archaeological site; see the Cyclopean Walls, the Treasury of Atreus—a magnificent 14th-century B.C. structure—and wander through the entrance of the Lion’s Gate and the Royal Tombs.
In the afternoon, head towards the seaport town of Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece with its Venetian fortress of Palamidi and the fortified islet of Bourtzi. Then continue to Epidaurus and spend time at the ancient amphitheatre, famed for its classic Greek construction and astounding acoustics. Climb to the 55th row of seats and enjoy the panoramic views from atop. Surrounded by lush greenery, this UNESCO-listed monument is a perfect blend of nature and architecture.
