Full description
Discover two of the most important archaeological sites in Greece on this tour. After getting picked up in Nafplion, head to your first stop, Mycenae. Travel to the mythical Kingdom of Agamemnon and learn more about one of the most brilliant cultures in prehistoric Greece, the Mycenaean civilization. Then head to the Lions Gate, the monumental palace entrance. See the Cyclopean walls around the Acropolis and the tombs of Atreus and Clytemnestra, a must for ancient history lovers.

Continue to the famous archaeological site of Epidaurus and explore its ancient theatre. You will also visit the Asclepieion of Epidaurus, ancient Greece's central healing location, and its surrounding monuments, such as the temple of Asklepios and Tholos.

Head back to Nafplion in the afternoon to begin your walking tour. Start at the Land Gate, passing by the point where Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first ruler of Greece, was killed, to reach Syntagma Square, where you can admire Venetian and neoclassical buildings. Discover historical buildings such as the First Parliament of the Greek State and the Archaeological Museum as you stroll through the Old Town's picturesque alleyways. Later, climb to Acronafplia, the Acropolis of Nafplion, and marvel at unique panoramic views of the city. Finish your tour at the city port, where you can admire the Bourtzi castle and a Venetian fortress built on an island.
