Full description
Depart Athens and journey along the coastal road of the Saronic Gulf to the Corinth Canal, connecting the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea on the narrow Isthmus of Corinth. Stop briefly to get a full appreciation of the surroundings and dramatic landscape. Then, drive to the archaeological site of Mycenae and follow in the footsteps of ancient poets as you explore the ruins of a major center of Greek civilization, immortalized by Homer. Stop for some lunch and visit landmark attractions, such as the Lion Gate, Cyclopean Walls and Royal Tombs. Depart Mycenae for Nauplion, and journey through the fertile plain of Argolis. Arrive at the picturesque town nestled at the foot of a cliff crowned by the mighty ramparts of the Palamidi Fortress. Stop to take some photos, and then continue on your way to Epidauros. Visit the breathtaking 4th century BCE theater, still used today and known for its astonishing acoustics.  Return to Athens by the national road connecting Epidauros with Corinth, and get dropped off at your hotel on arrival.

Great way to tour Isthmus of Corinth, Mycenae, Nafplio and Epidaurus in one day with nice 3 course lunch included. Wish we can have more time in Corinth to include paths of St Paul and more than 30 mins in Nafplio. Our tour guide was very informative and jolly and glad there’s wifi inside the van.

My wife and I took this tour as a chance to see what other regions of mainland Greece had to offer, and I am glad that we did. Epidaurus is a sight that CANNOT be missed, and many of the other sites offered wonderful views as well. However, the guide was a little unemotional when telling us about the region, and I struggled to stay engaged with her throughout the entire 8-hour experience. Generally, a good time though, and still well worth the cost of entry.
