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.

Excellent Day Tours to Delphi and Epidaurus/Mycenae from Athens

I took two separate one-day tours from Athens. I found both tours to be well-organized, with knowledgeable tour guides who managed the groups and timings expertly. I had done a good deal of research and preparation before coming to Greece, including reading books on these sites, studying the site plans, layouts, history, and the like. I found that the Key Tours guides hit all the major sights, were spot on with what I'd read, and used the time wisely. They also guided us through highlights of the Delphi and Mycenae museums. There was some free time as well in each place to explore further if desired. Based on my experience I highly recommend Key Tours.

Perfect day trip to Mycenae, Epidaurus and Nafplio!

What a wonderful day trip! We stopped at the Corinth Canal on our way to Epidaurus and Mycenae, with lunch and a quick tour of Nafplio too. We thought our tour guide was brilliant, with an incredibly detailed knowledge of the sites and their histories. We felt the timings were great too; we didn’t feel rushed and yet we were never bored at all. Definitely recommend!

Très bonne excursion pour finaliser notre séjour à Athènes, la visite du site de Delphes était très intéressante mais inoubliable grâce à Katerina qui était une guide intéressante, drôle et passionnante.

Par contre nous avons eu la veille une visite à Mycènes et Epidaure avec une autre guide et c'était beaucoup moins bien donc la qualité de la visite dépend du guide est est variable en ce sens key tours n'est pas à recommander pour toutes les visites

“Informative and Amazing.”

I had the same guide, Maria, from a previous Key tour in Athens and she remains incredibly knowledgable and passionate about the subject of Greek history!
