Highlights of Greece


This 2 days trip is a wonderful itinerary in the land of Peloponese. Mycene, the home of king Agamemnon, 3. 500 years old, yielded 15 kilos of gold. The acropolis is haunted by the tragic stories of Atreus family.
At the end of the day, Nauplio is awaiting for a relaxing walk. It was the first capital of Greece and preserves entirely its 19th cent. greek style with some Venetian and Ottoman influences.
Next destination, ancient Olympia. In this green valley, the Olympic games were born. Zeus temple was one of the wonders of the world and the sculpture in the Museum proves it. Here is also the statue of Hemes by Praxiteles
