Explore with this guided one full day trip from Athens to Argolis the remains of the ancient city of Mycenae a major centre of Greek civilization from 1600BC to 1100BC and a world heritage monument.
Depart from our terminal for one day tour via the coastal National highway for the Corinth canal (short stop). After the Corinth Canal, you enter the region of Argolis, land of Homer’s Golden Mycenae, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Dating back to the second century B.C., Mycenae was one of the major centers of Greek civilization and a military stronghold which dominated much of southern Greece . Visit the archaeological site, home to the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon. You will see the Cyclopean Walls, the Lion’s Gate, the Royal Tombs, including Agamemnon Clytemnestra's, and the Treasury of Atreus, a magnificent 14th-century B.C. structure. Time will then be taken for a traditional Greek optional lunch at a nearby restaurant. Before lunch an optional stop in a pottery factory. After lunch through ARGOS proceed to Nauplia the first capital of modern Greece with its Venetian fortress of PALAMIDI and the fortified islet of BOURTZI (short stop).
Continue on to Epidaurus and visit the ancient theatre. The UNESCO’S world heritage listed monument is reputed to be the birthplace of Apollo's son Asklepios, the healer and was the most celebrated healing center of the classical world. Epidaurus is probably most famous for its theatre, one of the best preserved classical Greek buildings and still used today due to its amazing acoustics. The Argolis (Mycenae - Epidaurus) day tour returns to Athens in the late afternoon.

Interesting tour with good comments from our guide Christina. Lunch was OK. The tomb of Arteus and the theater in Epidaurus were highlights.

It was a very well organised and complete tour. The driver was very polite so as our guide. She knew very well what she was talking about and explained really well. They were really careful when they came to give my vegan friend the right food for him. I would definitely recommend Keytours to my friends and family. Thank you very much

Great tour in a comfortable coach with a very respectable pick up time and just the right amount of time in each place. Our guide (and I'm sorry to say that I didn't catch her name) was amazing. Really knowledgeable, very firm with time keeping, helpful, knew her tour inside out. Plenty of stops, nice food, no being ripped off at a lunch taverner and would definitely recommend them again. Also the bus driver was excellent. Nice people to spend the day with.

We are 2 from India. Pickup and dropping is great. They are well organized. first day we went to Delphi. Worth trip. We were very happy to hear quite good histories of ancient Greece.Marianna is a great guide. Lunch is tasty. Second day we went to Argolis. Since we are only 2 people on that day, they have arranged Benz SUV with the guide. We were impressed with the tour guide knowledge. Had a great lunch in a family restaurant. Last but not least we are very much recommend tours with Key Travels.
