    Full – Day

The Argolis peninsula, which separates the Saronic and Argolic Gulfs, is steeped in legend and history.
The town of Argos, from which the region takes its name, is thought to be the longest continually inhabited town in Greece.
Argolis was the seat of power of the Mycenaean empire that ruled Greece from 1600 to 1100 BC. Traces of this mighty civilisation lie scattered across the region in the shape of tholos (tombs shaped like beehives), citadels and ancient theatres.
The Venetian seafront town of Nafplio, the first ever capital of Greece, makes a handy base for ventures into the surrounding countryside.

Ancient Corinth

Corinth was a city-state (polis) on the Isthmus of Corinth, the narrow stretch of land that joins the Peloponnese to the mainland of Greece, roughly halfway between Athens and Sparta.
The modern city of Corinth is located approximately 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) northeast of the ancient ruins.

Corinth Canal

The Corinth Canal is a canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea.
It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island.

Mycenae

Mycenae in Greece is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the country. The fortified citadel is nested over the fertile plain of Argolis near the seashore in the northeast Peloponnese. A very prosperous town in the ancient times, Mycenae Greece gave its name to an entire civilization, the Mycenaean civilization, that flourished from about 1,600 to 1,000 BC.

Nafplio

One of the most beautiful towns of Peloponnese, Nafplio was the first capital of the modern Greek state, from 1823 to 1834. A visit to the picturesque castle of Nafplio is a must.

Epidaurus

Epidaurus is one of the most popular archaeological sites in Greece. Located on the north eastern side of Peloponnese, in the region of Argolis, Epidaurus Greece is mostly famous for its Ancient Theatre.

This theatre was constructed in the late 4th century BC to host religious ceremonial events in honor of god Asclepius, whose healing centre was located few steps away. Famous for its symmetry and the incredible acoustics, this classical theatre is surrounded by lush greenery and gives nice view to the valley below. Source: www.greeka.com
