Ancient Corinth, Argolida, Mycenae via Isthmus of Corinth & Nafplion

Driving over the Isthmus of Corinth admiring a masterpiece of engineering we will head to the ancient Corinth which was the wealthiest city-state in all the ancient (Greek) world. The city was built at the foothills of Acrocorinth which was serving as a lookout against the city’s potential enemies.

Next stop … Mycenae, the home of one of the most important civilizations, the Mycenaean.

The Cyclopean Walls of the Citadel of Mycenae, the Underground Water system with the ornate stairs, the beehive tombs, the grave circle A and the golden funerary finds, the palace atop the citadel, the Lion Gate are just pieces of the magnitude of the Mycenaean civilization. 

The Ancient Theater of Epidaurus with its healing center. The theater in full harmony with the surrounding landscape was the entertainment center for the patients of Asklepeion healing center located just next to the theater (ancient Greeks were taking care of both their body and soul) !

 

Nafplio, we are on our way back and this is one of the most picturesque towns in Hellas. Nafplio is one of the most popular destinations at all times of the year. Nafplio can be a destination on its own, the beauty of the nature, the cobblestoned alleyways, Palamidi & Bourtzi, tavernas, cafes, etc.
