    What to Expect
    Begin your day trip with a pickup at your Athens hotel or from near Syntagma Square in central Athens. Settle inside your air-conditioned coach and admire the scenery as you trace the coast of the Saronic Gulf into the Peloponnese.

    After around 1.5 hours, arrive at the ancient hilltop city of Mycenae and enjoy a walking tour of the ruins of this once powerful, fortified settlement. Hear how the city was, in Greek myth, ruled by King Agamemnon, and view highlights such as the Palace, Tomb of Agamemnon and Lion’s Gate.

    Afterward, stop in the pretty seaport of Nauplia before continuing to ancient Epidaurus, the mythological birthplace of Asklepios, the Greek god of healing.

    Tour the spectacular relics, including the UNESCO-listed Sanctuary of Asklepios, with its crumbled buildings. Then, ogle the breathtaking ancient theatre of Epidaurus. Built in the 4th century BC, the colossal theater is considered one of the world’s most beautiful and still boasts fabulous acoustics.

    Your trip ends back at the original departure point in Athens.

    Our guide was not the strongest in her english so the commentary really let it down for me. Otherwise it was a comfortable journey with lots of interesting spots. The lunch was in a very nicely maintained hotel named Amelia but serving staff did not introduce the food being

    Loved the tour although it was a little more educational than what we expected. The lunch break at a hotel in the middle of nowhere was very disappointing. Lunch at the next stop of Nauplia would of been 100% better. So many choices to eat and such a cute quaint town.
