DescriptionAfter being collected from your accommodation, your first stop will be to visit the archaeological site of Mycenae, a former majestic military stronghold of the Mycenaean civilization which dominated the region from 1,600 to 1000 B.C. The mythological drama that unfolded here was intense, and included Agamemnon and his wife Helen sparking the Trojan War. You will be provided with complimentary technology which will not only take you through the archaeological site, but also through its tumultuous history. Departing from Mycenae, you will continue on to the birth of the Greek state and its first capital, Nafplion.

Additionally, you will visit Palamidi Castle upon the top of a 216-metre-high hill. You will enjoy breathtaking views of the gulf, and can take also take pictures on the quick boat ride to Bourtzi Castle, which is located in the middle of the harbor. Numerous churches can be found in the old town, which are adorned with fascinating Byzantine art. Finally, you will cool off with a buffalo-milk ice-cream at one of the cafes in Syntagma Square in Nafplion. You will then meet with the group at the end of your wanderings, at which point you will hop back on the bus for Athens, closing out the day’s adventure with relaxing sounds of music. Your tour leader will be there to answer any questions you may have and give you as much information as you need.
