Description

One hour drive away from Athens, in the area of Peloponnese and on our way to Mycenae you will be able to see the famous Corinth Canal. Here you will have a quick stop at the canal to admire this engineering marvel that connects the Aegean with the Ionian sea. After a brief stop at the Canal, you will continue towards Mycenae, one of the most important cities of ancient Greece. You will see the Mycenaean Acropolis, the tomb of Agamemnon and the ruins of the Cyclopean walls that protected this mighty city. You can also visit the Archaeological Museum of Mycenae. After exploring Mycenae you will continue to your last stop of the tour, the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus. This 4th-century-BC theater is one of the best-preserved Classical Greek structures in existence. Built of limestone is, without doubt, the highlight of Epidaurus area. It is renowned for its amazing acoustics; a coin dropped in the theater's center can be heard from the highest seat. The theater seats up to 14,000 people. Its entrance is flanked by restored Corinthian pilasters and the foundations of the ancient stage are beyond the circle. It's now used for performances of Ancient Greek drama during the annual Hellenic Festival.
