DescriptionTake a deeply informative and expert introduction to the magical lands of Corinthia and the Argolid, home to such legendary cities and pinnacles of human creation as Mycenae and Epidaurus. Perfect for avid admirers and discerning connoisseurs of Classical Greek archaeology and history, of natural beauty, and those who relish the experience of seeing the most evocative sites and monuments at first hand. Stay at a comfortable 4 star hotel with transport by modern, air–conditioned car, minibus or coach and dine in carefully chosen restaurants. Inspiring sites include the Corinth Canal, the extensive archaeological site of Ancient Corinth, the charming seaside base-town of Nauplio, your base for this tour, Nemea, where you will sample the celebrated deep ruby-red local red wine, Neolithic and Mycenaean citadel of Tiryns (birthplace of Heracles), followed by the important archaeological site of Argive Heraion, which affords a splendid view of the Argive Plain. Your tour continues to the UNESCO-listed Mycenae, the renowned city of King Agamemnon, with its Cyclopean walls, the Lion Gate and spectacular archaeological findings. Head across the Argive Plain to the little-known Pyramid of Hellinikon, a mysterious structure of uncertain use dated to the third millennium B.C. Enjoy a visit to Ancient Epidaurus after a stop at the fascinating museum of Natural History at Lygourio, with its rich collection of local and regional fossils. Visit the nearby ruins of the Pyramid of Lygourio and the intriguing Chapel of Aghia Marina which incorporates building blocks of the Pyramid. After a short drive, reach Ancient Epidaurus, renowned for its magnificent theatre and its Sanctuary of Asklepios, the god of healing. The site, set in a peaceful yet powerful setting features the best-preserved ancient theatre in Greece, acclaimed for its superb acoustics and its perfect proportions, exemplifying the mathematical ratio of the Golden Mean. Proceed to the lovely seaside town of Palaia Epidavros and its ancient yet recently-discovered, charming little theatre, before returning to Athens in the afternoon.
