Afterwards, continue the journey southwards to Epidaurus. Here, visit its Ancient Theatre, which is beautifully preserved and has surprising acoustics.
Hop back on the bus and stop briefly at Nafplio, a charming seaport town. Then, continue the tour to Mycenae, one of the oldest centers of Greek civilization and now home to one of the most famous archaeological sites.
Our day will finish in a hotel in Olympia, where we'll have dinner. Before going to bed, you'll be able to explore Olympia at your leisure.
