Drive by the coastal road along the Saronic Gulf to the Corinth Canal, which connects the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea (short stop)
Νext stop will be to visit the archaeological site of Mycenae, a former majestic military stronghold of the Mycenaean civilization which dominated the region from 1,600 to 1000 B.C. The mythological drama that unfolded here was intense, and included Agamemnon and his wife Helen sparking the Trojan War.
Departing from Mycenae, you will continue on to the birth of the Greek state and its first capital, Nafplion. Influenced by multiple cultures across centuries of occupations, there is much to explore here. You can stroll the town’s cobble-strewn streets influenced by truly artisanal spirits. Additionally, you will visit Palamidi Castle upon the top of a 216-metre-high hill. You will enjoy breathtaking views of the gulf, and can also see the Bourtzi Castle, which is located in the middle of the harbor. Numerous churches can be found in the old town, which are adorned with fascinating Byzantine art.
You will have free time for lunch, coffee and you will meet the driver at the same point he dropped you off, to continue to Epidaurus.
Epidaurus is one of the most popular archaeological sites in Greece. Located on the north eastern side of Peloponnese, in the region of Argolis, Epidaurus Greece is mostly famous for its Ancient Theatre. This theatre was constructed in the late 4th century BC and it is very famous for the incredible acoustics.
Overnight to Nafplio.
Next morning driving to Monemvasia, with a stop to Mystras.
Mystras, the ‘wonder of the Morea’, was built as an amphitheatre around the fortress erected in 1249. Reconquered by the Byzantines, then occupied by the Turks and the Venetians, the city was abandoned in 1832, leaving only the breathtaking medieval ruins, standing in a beautiful landscape.
Mystras’ distinct architecture is influenced by the so-called “Helladic” school of Byzantine architecture as well as the architecture of Constantinople. The painting of churches reflects the quality and the eclecticism of the art of Constantinople.
Arriving and overnight to Monemvasia.
Monemvasia (Μονεμβάσια) is located in the southeastern Peloponnese in the prefecture of Laconia, 400 meters from land having been separated from the mainland by an earthquake in 375 A.D. Its name derives from two Greek words, mone and emvassi, meaning “single entrance”.
It was founded by the Byzantines in the sixth century and shortly after it became an important port.
