This concise tour covers a multitude of noteworthy ancient sites, majestic monuments and mystical monasteries.

Price includes

  • Athens: Ascend the ‘Sacred Rock’, the Acropolis, to admire the Parthenon built in 5th century BC as well as the smaller Temple of Athena Nike and ‘Porch of the Maidens’.
  • Mycenae: Walk through the Lion Gate past the royal ‘beehive’ tombs where Schliemann uncovered golden treasure, hearing tales of Agamemnon (hacked to death in his bath by his wife Klytemnestra!).
  • Argolis: View beautiful works of art during your visit to a family-run pottery studio, which embraces traditional methods.
  • Epidaurus: Visit the Sanctuary of Asklepios. In the centre of the enclosure stood the temple dedicated to the god of medicine. Visit the museum, as well as the best preserved open-air theatre in the whole of Greece.
