Itinerary

Leave Athens behind and head west to the Corinth Canal, an impressive man-made passage. Here, you’ll stop briefly to admire one of the most impressive engineering works of art ever made.

Afterwards, you’ll continue the journey to Epidaurus, where Apollo’s son Asclepius was born. Upon arrival, follow your knowledgeable English-speaking guide to its Ancient Theatre, one of the best-preserved constructions from Ancient Greece. It is also famous for its surprising acoustics.   

Before you leave Epidaurus, you’ll visit its Archaeological Museum. As you discover its rooms, learn about the ancient medical techniques which were carried out in the Temple of Asclepius, sacred to the Greek God of medicine.

After visiting the museum, hop back on the bus and admire the fertile valleys full of orange trees until you get to Mycenae. This ancient town was one of the most important centers of Greek civilization. Upon arrival, tour its archaeological site, home of the legendary Agamemnon. Your guide will expose parts of the Iliad and the Odyssey.

After visiting the citadel, the striking Lion’s Gate and the Tomb of Agamemnon you will head back to Athens, arriving at approximately 6:30pm.
