Highlights of Greece
This 2 days trip is a wonderful itinerary in the land of Peloponese. Mycene, the home of king Agamemnon, is the oldest great civilisation of Europe. The massive ruins of walls and tombs make the perfect scenery for all the epic and drama tales written about this place. At the end of this visit, Nauplio is awaiting you for a relaxing walk. It was the first capital of Greece and preserves entirely its 19th cent. neoclassical architecture with some Venetian and Ottoman influences.
Next destination, ancient Olympia. In this green valley, in the name of Zeus, the Olympic games were born. The best artists were invited and what they created have the spirit of Beauty and Harmony.
