Description

This full-day tour from Athens takes you to some of the major sites of Greek antiquity on the outskirts of the city. Following a pick-up from your hotel, start the private tour from Athens that will give you the opportunity to explore the wonders of the ancient world. Traveling by air-conditioned bus, you will enjoy a short stop at the Corinth Canal, an impressive 3.9 mile long (6.3 kilometer) canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth to the Aegean Sea. Continue to Mycenae, the historical setting for much of ancient Greek literature, including the works of the poet Homer. Here you will visit the archeological site, home to the Lionesses Gate, and the tomb of King Agamemnon. Before lunch you will have the option of visiting a pottery factory where you can see the techniques used by ancient Greeks to create their beautiful vases and earthenware. After enjoying a relaxing lunch we will continue on, making a short stop in Nauplia, the first capital of modern Greece and home to the fortress of Palamidi. The final stop of the tour is the city of Epidaurus, home to the World Heritage listed ancient theatre and believed by ancient Greeks to be the birthplace of Apollo’s son Asklepios. The theatre at Epidaurus is perhaps the best preserved theatre of ancient Greece and is still used today due to its amazing acoustics. The tour will conclude with a drive back to Athens, completing a full day of history and beauty.
