    : Breakfast
  • Day 4: NAUPLIA – EPIDAURUS – MYCENAE – SPARTA.

    This morning, journey into ethe Argolis to stop in Epidaurus, located in the hilly countryside dotted with pine trees and oleanders. In this magnificent setting, visit the ancient open-air theatre that can still seat 14,000 spectators. Later, enjoy the included excursion to the archaeological site and the museum of Mycenae, a city fortress cursed by the gods but rich in gold and warrior kings. Travel into the Peloponnese to Sparta, where history hangs between reality and legend.
