Description

Your tour includes a visit to: Ancient Corinth (where you can see the Long Walls that begin at the summit of Acro-Corinth and descend all the way to Lechaion, the artificial harbor on the Corinthian Gulf, the Agora, the Dorian Temple of Apollo [6th c. BC with 1st c. AD restorations], the museum which contains mosaic floors, Mycenaean and Corinthian pottery, terra cotta sphinxes, statues of two supernatural beings, and small objects of various kinds, and the Bima where St Paul preached). Your journey continues with a visit to the Canal (which is about 6 km long and connects the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea; its width upon completion was 25 meters, and 8 meters deep), Mycenae (where you will see the Cyclopean Walls, the Grave Circle A with 6 royal tombs, courtiers’ houses, sanctuaries, the Grave Circle B with 14 royal tombs and 12 tombs of private citizens, the Treasure of Atreus also known as the beehive tomb of Agamemnon, and the Lions Gate), Nafplion (where you can climb up the 999 steps to the Venetian fortress of Palamidi crowning the city, wander around the battlements of Acronafplia and pop over to the fortified island, Bourtzi), and finally The Theater of Epidaurus (which is known for its exceptional acoustics, which permit almost perfect intelligibility of unamplified spoken word from the proscenium or skene to all 15,000 spectators, regardless of their seating).
