Location

DAY 1: ATHENS - ARGOLIS - NAFPLIO: 

  • Starting early in the morning from your Hotel, and driving along Attica western coast we are having a short stop at the breathtaking sightseeing at the Canal of Corinth of the 6 km length and 80m height. We continue driving along the coast of eastern Peloponnese and after a while, we arrive at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, one of the best Ancient Theatres worldwide! Our next stop is at the archaeological site of Mycenae, an ancient town with great power the past years, where you can admire the famous “Gate of Lions” and the “Atreus King Tomb”. We finish the first day of our tour at the most romantic town of Greece, the seaside town of Nafplio, where you can visit its Castle that you can reach climbing 999 steps (!), or take a small boat and visit “Bourtzi”, the fortress at the entrance of the harbor that is also the trademark of the town. Free time to explore this wonderful city during the afternoon and the night, as we stay at Nafplio for overnight. 

DAY 2: NAFPLIO - ANCIENT OLYMPIA - ATHENS: 

  • Leaving Nafplio to reach at the archaeological site of Ancient Olympia, the place that the first Olympic Games ever  took place in 776 B.C. Ancient Olympia lies in the lush valley formed by the Alfios river. There you will visit the temple of Zeus the most celebrated sanctuary of ancient Greece. Dedicated to Zeus, in antiquity the temple was housing one of the 7 wonders of the Ancient world, the gold and ivory statue of Zeus, which Phedias had created.  Visit the temple of Hera, the shrine of Pelops (one of the oldest in the sanctuary), the Council house where the athletes took the Olympic oath, the Treasury houses, the Gymnasium and the Palestra where they used to exercise for a month prior to the Games and finally the Stadium, where the marble starting blocks are still in position! Although secluded near the west coast of the Peloponnese, Olympia became the most important religious and athletic center in Greece.
  • (optional) For wine lovers, before we leave for Ancient Olympia we suggest that you pay a visit to a unique boutique, family & privately owned vineyard which extends to almost 10 hectares close to Olympia. We propose you to taste a glass of wine as appetitive or accompanied to a plateau of local cheese. The blend of the Mandarin and Petrokersou variety with the notes of Rose of the famous Loukoumi gives you a perfect tasteful experience!
