Half day private tour in the historical monuments of Argolis (Peloponnese)


Argolis is one of the regional units in Greece and belongs to the region of Peloponnese. It is considered to be one of the most famous destinations in Greece and the ideal place for travelers who would like to visit priceless ancient monuments and enjoy at the same time, the marvelous and picturesque natural scenery.

This one-day tour is designed to discover the qualities of beautiful Argolis. The famous Mycenae, the Ancient theatre of Epidavros and the beautiful town of Nafplio are waiting for us to recount their rich history and to carry us into the past.

Restrictions:
I am not a licensed guide and I will not be able to come with you inside the historical sites.

Itinerary

We pick you up from our meeting point and we begin our tour to the majestic historical monuments of Argolis.

Our first stop is the famous Mycenae, home of the Mycenaean civilization and Greek prehistory, where we visit the famous burial circles, the Gate of the Lions and the famous vaulted tombs of Atreus and Clytemnestra.

Our next stop is the famous theatre of Epidavros that took "flesh and bones" in 340 BC. We wander in Aslipieio, and we are impressed by the perfect acoustics of the theatre, which still hosts rich musical, dance and theatrical performances.

Finally we return to Nafplio and we set off for our acquaintance with the city of Nafplio and we wander in the picturesque alleys with its neoclassical mansions and Venetian balconies.
