Isthmus of Corinth – Ancient Corinth – Nemea
Athens, early in the morning. We are picking you up from your hotel or apartment and driving to Peloponnese, where we are going to visit all the above magnificent places and meet the Ancient Greek History and Legends!
After a short journey, we are leaving Attica and reaching our first station, Isthmus of Corinth. This admirable structure, whose history starts 2.500 years before, when the tyrant Periandros was the first to begin this project, connects Peloponnese with Greek Mainland, while the Corinth canal connects the two gulfs, Saronic and Corinth, that is Aegean with Ionian Sea.
Our next station is Epidaurus, not only a beautiful seaside village, but mainly a place whose name is connected with the art of Theater. The ancient theater of Epidaurus, included in UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list, is a renowned monument, which still hospitalizes many important performances every summer. Near the theater, we can visit the Sanctuary of Asclepius, the Medicine God.
Leaving the impressive Epidaurus, we are travelling towards Nafplion, one of the most romantic and beautiful towns of Greece. The medieval atmosphere of the old city, together with the view of Palamidi fortress, as well as the small island-fortress lying at the port’s entrance make you feel like you have been transferred into another era. After having enjoyed a walk next to the beach, we can go on.
Next destination is Mycenae, a globally known Ancient Greek City, the kingdom of Great Agamemnon. The archaeological site consists in the fortified Acropolis, the legendary Cyclopean Walls, the treasure and unique tomb of Atreus, the Lions Gate and many other astonishing remains and findings, kept either in the local archaeological museum or other national ones.
Plenty of sensations and feelings, we are leaving Mycenae to visit our tour’s last destination, Ancient Olympia. You are going to have the great honor to stand on the ground of the Olympic Games stadium, while the environment’s vibes will motivate your emotion and offer you a time-travel ticket, to meet Phidias sculpting in his workshop, the priestesses of Zeus’ and Hera’s Temples and so many other precious views and experiences.
Having completed our scheduled trip, we are leaving Peloponnese, having kept deeply in our hearts all this unforgettable experience and driving back to Athens.
