We will leave Athens behind us. We'll drive on the coastal road towards West Attica, to the Corinth Canal where our first stop is going to be. There we will make a stop for approximately one hour. It will be enough time to see the Canal that approximately 6 km long and connects the Aegean to the Ionian Sea. It is a nice excuse to take some photos and have a coffee or a snack.

A ten-minute drive through orange and lemon tree fields will get us to Ancient Corinth. The town of Corinth is plenty of archaeological sites. We'll visit its unique museum, the Temple of Apollo (God of Light, Sun, Knowledge and patron of the Oracles), the Roman baths and the Bema (the Step). This is the place where St. Paul preached to the Corinthians in 52 a.C.

Another thirty-minutes drive to the North East part of Peloponnese in Argolis, through olive fields and vineyards, will take us to Mycenae. This city was the administrative centre of the Mycenean Empire. In ancient literature, the city was mentioned as «Rich in Gold». It was the home of the mythical King Agamemnon, who dominated the Aegean Sea after the distraction of the Minoan Empire. The city oversees the Argolic gulf, located on a hill above the plain of Argos. Its elevated position and huge Cyclopean Walls offered significant protection from unexpected attacks. At the peak of its power (1300 b.C) its population lived around the fortress. The Palace was a symbol of power and home to the Mycenaean rulers. There was only one entrance over a large ramp, through the Lions Gate. Our visit in the ancient citadel will include the Lion’s Gate, the Cyclopean Walls, and the Royal Tombs and more...

When our walk in Mycenae is complete, we'll move on a fourty minute route through the orange and lemon tree fields of the fertile plain of Argolis. We will arrive in Nafplion, a picturesque littoral town. It was the first capital of the modern Greek state, from 1829 to 1834. This was a decision made by John Kapodistrias, the first Governor of Greece, a few years after the outburst of the Greek War of Independence against the Turkish oppression, in 1821. Today, Nafplion attracts countless travellers from all over the world and has become a popular destination, due to its proximity to Athens.

We will visit the Palamidi Castle for a few minutes. This castle was the last construction of the Venetian Empire. We will then visit and the Acronafplia Castle, the walls of which date back to pre-classical times. These two castles are located on a hill above the old town. We will then walk in the town of Nafplion and we'll have lunch at a picturesque restaurant by the sea. From there we 'll enjoy a great view of the Bourtzi Castle that is situated on a small islet, at the entrance of the port.

After our Nafplion experience, we'll drive for thirty-minutes to ancient Epidaurus. It is a spiritual place that dates back to the 3rd Century b.C. Of the sites worth visiting, the most known are the Sanctuary of Asclepius, that was a healing and cultural centre in ancient times and the Theatre of Epidaurus that is famous for its immaculate acoustic. The theatre is still used in our days. It's one of the few that retain the original circular Orchestra and this rare aesthetic sight.
