Visit the first capital of Greece, the city of Nafplio, from where one can explore some of the most important sites of the Greek antiquity such as Ancient Mycenae, the Theater of Epidauros, and the castle of Palamidi overlooking Nafplion.

Mycenae was one of the greatest cultural centers of ancient Greece and an entire period in history is named after it. It is often referred to as "Golden Mycenae" due to the abundance of gold that was found there in the excavations of the 19th Century.

Then on to the Epidauros Theater which is the largest and one of best preserved ancient theaters in Greece. It can accommodate 14.000 spectators and comes to life every summer with the Festival of Epidaurus, performing ancient comedies and tragedies, revealing the culture before the eyes of the spectator.

Complete the discovery of this marvelous Mycenaean civilization by spending some time at the historical center of Nafplio, a town suspended in time, and have lunch at one of its traditional tavernas.

 

  • As you enter through the Lions' Gate and walk around the ruins of the City of Ancient Mycenae, remember Homer's famous poem, The Iliad, where Agamemnon, the Greek protagonist of the Trojan War once ruled.
  • Don't miss visiting the Mycenae Archaeological Museum with more than 2000 exhibits, one of them being the Golden Mask of Agamemnon.
  • Continue your tour with a visit to the famous vaulted tombs, such as the tomb of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra. Also, just a breath away is the most magnificent and well preserved vaulted Mycenaean tomb, "The Treasure of Atreus".
  • Then on to the Theatre of Epidauros, renowned for its outstanding acoustics. Don't miss out to test it by standing at the highest point and throwing a coin to the orchestra!
  • Challenge yourself to a climb of 999 steps to the Palamidi Fortress of Nafplio and become awed by the breathtaking view!
