activity info

Explore with your professional and passionate guide the remains of the ancient city of Mycenae, a major centre of Greek civilization from 1600BC to 1100BC and the archaeological treasure of Epidaurus. Follow in the footsteps of the ancient Greeks on this fascinating full day excursion.

Depart from our terminal via the coastal National highway for the strategically important 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. Avoid and skip the lines of 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. Afterward, stop in the beautiful sea port of 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. Your day trip ends back to Athens late in the afternoon.

The tour was well coordinated. The guide was very knowledgeable and proficient in several languages which allowed everyone on the bus to feel acquainted with everything she was sharing. It was a great experience through these beautiful cities.

The sights were interesting and for the most part, ample time was given to see everything, except Mycenae where we would have been happy to have more time.

This day trip by Key Tours was amazing. The pickup was very prompt. The guide was very engaging and filled us in with a lot of information starting with the history of Greece. Make sure you sit on the left side of the bus. It has the scenic views of the sea. The return route is not the exact same route so, if you sat on the right, you will miss out on a lot of beautiful scenery. Also, make sure you pack some snacks and water and be sure to buy their food package. The lunch was a bit late (as stated by other reviews and by the Key Tours staff) but they cover a lot of ground and do it well. Epidaurus and Mycenae will stay in my memory! The place that served the lunch was also amazing (just remember that drinks are extra). I cannot say enough good things about the guide/driver and the coverage. We all gave a good applause to the guide and driver at the end of the trip. I would definitely do it again and recommend it highly.

The bronze age site of Mycenae is an absolute don't-miss for travelers in Greece. A tour is the most convenient way to get there, and key tours has very knowledgeable guides and comfortable accommodations. This tour also includes the ancient sanctuary at Epidauros, the shrine of the God of healing, and the lovely city of Nauplion.
