Full description
Your private tour start from Athens early in the morning. Drive towards the scenic coastal road of Athens to the magnificent structure of the Corinth Canal, which is in Peloponnese, the southern peninsula of Greece. The Corinth Canal connects the Saronic with the Corinthian Gulf in the Aegean Sea. A dream of the ancients that came true in 1893. Time for some rest and some amazing photos above the Corinth Canal.

Leave the Isthmos and driving to the Ancient Corinth, where St. Paul lived for almost two years doing very important misionary work. There is the church that has the 1st Letter to the Corinthians written in four languages, Greek, Arabic, French and English. Ancient Corinth was an important state city during the ancient years, the richest and most famous port in ancient Greece. There you can visit both Greek and Roman arhitectures at the archaeological site and the museum.

Then, the driver will take you to Mycenae, the golden city of King Agamemnon, the one who united all the Greek cities to fight for a common purpose against Troy. Mycenae was the city from which the Mycenaean civilization started and has an archaeological site. There you will visit the burial Royal Tombs of the kings and queens, the cyclopian walls, the Lion Gate, and the treasury of Atreas,the Cyclopean Walls.

Go on to Nafplion, the first modern Capital of Greece from 1821 till 1834. You will see the Castle of the city, Palamidi, as well as Mpourtzi the island fortress, the first defence line of the port. It's a wonderfull seaside place ideal for some walking and tasting of famous Greek cuisine in a memorable lunch in a traditional restaurant or tavern .There you can see the old houses of the Nafplion as well as the local shops that sell handmade objects and jewelry for all tastes and wallets.

After your lunch, drive back to Athens.
