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.

Day trip to Mycenae and Epidaurus.... excellent trip. We were picked up near our hotel in a small van that was in excellent condition. Our guide was on time leaving and returning. It was a easy day, though 10 hours long. It was so interesting to see the ruins and hear about the history of the area. The lunch stop and fee time in Nauplion and a stop to se the Corinth Canal were added bonuses. I would highly recommend this day trip

We loved the tour! Our guide Evangelos gave us a very exciting tour, starting from when we left Athens in the morning until we returned. You can expect to hear a bit of everything, from ancient history and myth to the main industries of Greece and food traditions. The desk office was really helpful and flexible with changing a booking and the driver was good. We highly recommend this tour, particularly Evangelos.

What a wonderful trip. Our host Zoe, performed the tour in English and Spanish! What an amazing effort on her part. Zoe gave some great information and entertaining stories. Nick the driver was very accomplished and a superior driver. Well done navigating those streets in that big bus! The trip itself was fantastic, the ruins were awe inspiring and I would recommend this day trip to everyone! Plenty of scenic photo opportunities but of the fabulous Lions gate and breathtaking landscapes.
