Day 1 – Leave Athens in the morning and head for Elefsina. See the sanctuary and temple dedicated to the Goddess of Agriculture, Dimitra. You will learn the story of how her daughter Persephone was kidnapped by Pluto and see the gate to the underworld. After that we will visit the canal of Corinth. Next it’s on to the ancient theater of Epidavros, known for its perfect acoustics and still used in the summer months for live performances. We end our day in the seaside city of Nafplio, the first capital of Greece. See and visit the fortress Palamidi overlooking all of Nafplio. If you are the adventurous type, you can climb the 857 stairs leading to the top. Sleep in Nafplio.
Day 2 – After a nights rest, we leave for our visit to Ancient Mycenae. Here you will see the Lion’s Gate, the Cyclopean Walls, the Royal Tombs and the museum. You will also be able to go inside the actual tomb of King Agamemnon which is nearby. Our next stop is in Nemea, famous in Greek myth as the home of the Nemean Lion which was killed by the hero Hercules. If time permits, we may also visit a winery here. Before returning to Athens, we will see and visit Ancient Corinth, dedicated to the Patron God of Arts, Apollo.
We work strictly with our A/C Mercedes sedans that can hold 4 passengers plus the driver. All tours are priced per tour not per person and do not include entrance fees to the archaeological sites or food.
Overnight tours include the drivers' hotel, meals and all tolls/gas. They do not include your hotel, meals and entrance fees to the sites.
None of the taxi tour drivers are licensed guides and would not be able to go into the sites or museums with you. We consider ourselves very knowledgeable about Greece and its history and would give you a lot of information on all the places you would visit before you go in. Licensed guides can be hired at most sites if you choose to do so.
