Upon arrival, we will first visit, Mycenae and the Epidaurus sites.

 

Mycenae is an archaeological site located on the hilltop, where you can see across the Argolida to the Saronic Gulf.

In the second millennium BC, Mycenae was one of the major centers of Greek civilization, a military stronghold that ruled much of southern Greece.

Since Schliemann's day, more scientific excavations have taken place at Mycenae, mainly by Greek archaeologists but also by the British School at Athens. The Acropolis was excavated in 1902, and subsequent excavations have methodically investigated the surrounding hills

 

Epidaurus: Reputed to be the birthplace of Apollo's son Asclepios, the healer, Epidaurus was known for its sanctuary as well as its theater, which is once again in use today.

Epidaurus was the most celebrated healing center of the Classical world, the place where sick people went for the hope of being cured.

To find out the right cure for their ailments, they spent a night in the enkoimeteria, a big sleeping hall.

In their dreams, God himself would advise them what they had to do to regain their health.

The Ancient Sanctuary, an ancient guest house with 160 guest rooms, along with the mineral springs in the vicinity which may have been used for healing.

We will also enjoy some free time in the charming town of Nafplion

We will then drive back to Athens,
