Get to know the best of Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece, with this 2 day trip from Athens. Enjoy strolling around the picturesque old town, have a coffee beside the sea viewing the impressive Bourtzi islet and visit two UNESCO'S world heritage monuments.
1st DAY: Leave Athens behind and head to the strategically Corinth canal (short stop). Continue to Mycenae and visit the archaeological site and the tomb of Agamemnon. Learn about the classical Greek culture as you walk through this impressive site. Proceed to the beautiful seaport town of Nauplia. The afternoon is free for you for a visit to the majestic Venetian fortress of Palamidi crowning the city or alternatively go for a refreshing swim. Don't miss also the opportunity to visit important landmarks such as the Old Mosque, Vouleftikon and harbor island fortress of Mpourtzi. Overnight stay in Nauplia.
2nd DAY: The next morning is at your leisure for a walk to the old city with its beautiful neoclassic houses. Meander along picturesque lanes and stepped streets; pass handsome mansions and flower-filled balconies; and discover examples of the city’s Frankish, Venetian and Ottoman periods. Around noon depart for 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 tour ends back to Athens late in the afternoon.
