Shore Excursion in Argolis, Corinth, Mycenae...


With this Private shore excursion from Piraeus port, we will have a photo tour at the Canal and then a visit at Ancient Corinth and Ancient Agora who Apostle Paul walked and met his followers. Then we will visit the "golden" city of Mycenae, the city of the legendary king Atreus and Agamemnon...

One of the most important and most famous archaeological sites of Greece. The Mycenaean citadel is a fascinating place. The next visit will be at Sanctuary of Asklepios at Epidaurus. The Ancient Theater of Epidaurus is one of the most important ancient archaeological sites reflecting the splendor of the Greek culture. We will visit the city of Nafplio, the most romantic city of Greece.

You can walk around the narrow streets of the old town of Nafplio to admire the ancient walls, medieval castles, monuments and statues, Venetian or neoclassical buildings. Also you can visit the Castle of the Town, with the 999 steps (!) and the amazing view, or take a taxi boat to visit the small island of Bourtzi, in the middle of the city’s harbor, the fort on the sea and Nauplio’s trademark! The tour takes about 9 hours.


Location

  • Our driver will be waiting next to your cruise ship at Piraeus port holding a sign with your name written on it in order to meet you and start this special private shore excursion in Argolis, Peloponnese. (Ancient Corinth, Mycenae, Epidaurus, Nafplio). We will have our first short stop at the breathtaking Canal of Corinth (6 km length and 80m height!).
  • We continue to reach at Ancient Corinth which was one of his beloved cities of Saint Paul. We will have the chance to visit the Ancient Market and the Bema of Apostle Paul or Galionas, a large elevated rostrum standing prominently in the center of the Roman Forum of ancient Corinth and from where the city’s officials addressed the public (probably because of the monument’s connection to Saint Paul, the Bema was transformed into a Christian church during the Byzantine period), and we will walk at the same paths that Apostle of Nations walked and preached hundreds of years earlier.
  • Will visit at the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus of the 15.000 spectators. Sanctuary of Asklepios at Epidaurus. Epidaurus is one of the most important ancient archaeological sites reflecting the splendor of the Greek culture, through its imposing beauty. The ancient town stands on the land of Argolida, overlooking the Saronic Gulf. The mountains Arachnaio, Koryfaio and Tithio embraced the ancient town and protected it against strong winds, endowing it with a very mild climate. Gurgling sparkling waterways, beautiful natural landscapes and the beneficial climate served to create the ideal location for engaging in man-healing practices with the help of the Gods. This is where Asklepieion was founded; it served as the main practice area for the Healer god of greek antiquity and it was the most important healing center of the entire Greek and roman world.
  • We will visit Ancient Mycenae with the famous ‘’Gate of Lions’’ and ‘’Atreus King Tomb’’! The "golden" city of Mycenae, the city of the legendary king Atreus and Agamemnon, the one that was cited by Hommer and excavated by Eric Sleeman, is one of the most important and most famous archaeological sites of Greece. The Dorian migration was the outset of the decay of Mycenae, which was destroyed by the people of Argos in the 5th cent. B.C. and was abandoned in the 10th cent. The Mycenaean citadel is still a fascinating place.
  • We will visit the city of Nafplio, the most romantic city of Greece. The town’s history traces back to the prehistoric era when soldiers from here participated in the Aeronautic expedition and the Trojan War alike. Ancient walls, medieval castles, monuments and statues, Ottoman fountains and Venetian or neoclassical buildings mesmerize the visitor with their unique architecture and beauty.  You can have a traditional lunch here and then a walk next to the coast, or you can visit the Castle of the Town, with the 999 steps (!) and the amazing view, or take a taxi boat to visit the small island of Bourtzi, in the middle of the city’s harbor, the fort on the sea and Nafplio’s trademark!
