Land of Homer


The plain of Argolis is a cistern of myths. Mycene, "rich in gold" was the palace and the tomb of the king Agamemnon who fought the war of Troy. Stories from the greek theatre are still haunting the place. .
The theatre of Epidaurus is a wonder of acoustic. Here, the greek god of medicine was worshipped and olistic therapeutic methods were applied.

The day includes a long break in the charming town of Nauplio, the first capital of modern Greece with its three castles, Venetian style, and Neoclassical homes.
Highlights of the tour: Lion's gate, tomb of Agamemnon, theatre of Epidsurus, Palamidi castle.
Tip! If you like to taste the Nemean wines you may ask me to book a visit in a local winery

A Recent Review of this tour

Nota, well-informed and very pleasant, made our visit to the Peloponnese a highlight of our visit to Greece. I loved the balance of history of the famous heavy-stoned Lion Gate and a wander away from the crowd, where she was as knowledgable about the tiny plants growing in rock crevices, as ancient Mycenae history. She and her able driver Vangelisco made a long day go by in a flash for our group of 4. The van was extremely comfortable and plenty of A/C Nota is a guide I would recommend, very favorably.
