We drive along the National highway to the Peloponnese and we reach the Corinthian canal or else Isthmus canal that connects the Saronic Sea and the Corinthian Sea. After a short stop for pictures, we continue with a ten-minute drive at Ancient Corinth and its unique museum, the Temple of Apollo-the God of Oracles and the Sun, the Roman baths and finally the Vima (step) from where St. Paul preached to the Corinthians in 52 A.D.

We leave Ancient Corinth and after a about thirty-minute scenic drive, we arrive at the ancient citadel of Mycenae who was the center of power in the Late Bronze age. The Acropolis of Mycenae protected the royal families inside the famous Cyclopean walls. The Lion Gates, followed by a steep path through ancient buildings and pathways, will lead you to the Palace of the mighty leader of the Greeks against the Trojans, Agamemnon who was murdered by his wife Clytemnestra and her lover after he had returned victorious from the Trojan War. Leaving the Acropolis of Mycenae, we make a short stop on another hill opposite the Palace, visiting an impressive monument, the Treasury of Atreus also known as the Tomb of Agamemnon.

After a scenic drive through orange and lemon tree fields of Argolis plain arriving at Nafplion, a picturesque seaport town near the north end of Argolis Gulf who was the first capital of modern Greece. Nowadays Nafplion attracts a great number of travelers all over the world and has become a popular day or weekend road trip for Athenians.

We conclude our visit to Nafplion by having lunch at a picturesque restaurant by the sea.

Leaving Nafplion, we continue our tour with a thirty-minute drive to ancient Epidaurus, a spiritual place worth visiting for its sites such as the Sanctuary of Asclepius and the ancient Theatre with its unique acoustics, still used in our days.
