ANCIENT CORINTH AND MYCENAE

Add to Itinerary

Departing from the port of Nauplia and after a 1 1/2 hour drive, you will reach the ancient town of Corinth, where Saint Paul lived and preached for two years. During ancient times, Corinth was among the richest cities and this is quite evident by its remains, including the huge Agora (Market Place) and Apollo's Temple (6th century BC).

Corinth remains breathtaking and your imagination, while looking at this world wonder, will try to picture the history that sailed through this crevass.

After visiting Ancient Corinth, you'll proceed to Mycenae. As you enter through the famous Lion's Gate, before you is the citadel of Mycenae. Inside the cyclopean walls, to the right of the entrance, is the Grave Circle, the royal cemetery believed to contain the body of Agamemnon. Outside the walls, 400 meters from the citadel site, the startling beehive tomb of Agamemnon, known as the “Treasure of Atreus,” will enrapture you.

This tour is yet another example of the blending of historical fact and fiction. The mythology that accompanies much of Greek history makes this country utterly fascinating.
