Itinerary

Isthmus/Corinth canal which separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland where you will appreciate the engineering and incredible views of the Corinthian and Saronic gulfs. Here you have the opportunity to experience the ultimate adrenaline rush with Zulu Bungy diving off from the bridge into the narrow Isthmus of Corinth (255.9 ft/78 m ).

Mycenae , the kingdom of Agamemnon is a World Heritage UNESCO Site discovered by H. Schliemann. According to the epics of Homer, the expedition to Troy started from here.

Nafplio was the first capital city of modern Greece. It is a picturesque town with Venetian architecture that the Venetians used to call the Naples of Greece. You can easily see the Venetian fortress of Palamidi on the top of a hill above and the fortified islet of Bourtzi in the old port. The old town was built at the beginning of the 19th century, but buildings still exist from the Venetian time.

During our tour, we will visit the Cathedral and the church of Saint Spiridon where Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first Governor of Greece, was murdered. We will continue to the Syntagma Square and explore its historic buildings from different periods such as the Archaeological Museum, the Vouleftikon that housed the first parliament of the free Greek state and the Old Mosque and Freedom Square honoring our liberty with the help of the French.

Epidaurus is one of the most popular archaeological sites in Greece and an UNESCO’S world heritage listed monument. It is the birthplace of Apollo's son Asklepios, who was a healer. Epidaurus was the most celebrated healing center of the ancient Greek world.

This magnificent theatre was constructed in the late 4th century BC to host religious events to honor the god Asclepius. The theater is famous for its symmetry and it is also unique because of its excellent state of conservation, which allows it to be still in use. Another fact about this theater is the perfect acoustics. During summer, it hosts performances of ancient Greek drama.

Few steps from the Ancient Theatre is the Sanctuary of Asklepios, a very popular healing center in the ancient times. The Archaeological Museum hosts many interesting exhibits from excavations on this site.
