Feel the glory of the bronze age citadel of Mycenae and stroll through the town of Nafplion
Choosing this tour will give you an opportunity to discover a marvellous county of Greece called Argolis!
After visiting the Corinth canal, you will have the chance to see both an ancient Acropolis and one of the most historical greek towns.
You will feel the glory of the bronze age citadel of Mycenae, as you see the so called Lions gate, intact for you to use and enter the fortress. As soon as you set foot in the citadel you will enjoy the view of the citrus valley around Mycenae and you will stumble upon the site where the mask of Agamemnon was found. Our understanding of the Mycenaean civilization is completed with a secondary shorter visit, a fist class chance to admire the most well preserved bee-hive tomb.
As for the town of Nafplion, I will gladly show you the statues of both our first King and Governor. The feeling you get today is that not much has changed since the early 1800s. The town is crowned by a medieval castle, Palamidi, of which you can take pics throughout our short stroll!
We start from Athens headed southeast, crossing over the canal of Corinth and we visit Mycenae, the bronze age citadel first. Then we continue to Nafplion, the capital of the modern state of Greece, before Athens was recognised as such. This tour takes to one of the most important archeological sites, protected by Unesco and to a picturesque town by the sea. We have three stops in total, so you do not spent too much time in the mini van, you have short 15' stop by the Canal, photo and rest stop, you spent a maximum of 60' in the site and town and the duration of the tour is 7 hours. Its a pleasant short trip that takes you to one of most well known regions a bit outside of Athens.
