A Visit to Argolis

Half Day

From € 0 .00 Person


Approximate Duration: 8,5hours Epidaurus The greatest concentration of ancient sites in Greece is found on the little peninsula of Argolis. After departing from the pier on an approximately one-hour drive along the highway, you will pass by the Corinth Canal. Your first stop is at the ancient site of Mycenae. The first in-depth excavations here were carried out by the German archaeologist Schlieman in 1876 who was obsessed with finding the grave of King Agamemnon. His diligent work exposed the famous Lions Gate, the entrance to the city which contains the shaft burial graves of some ancient nobles. A short distance away is the Beehive Tomb, so called due to its unusual shape. At the end of the guided tour of Mycenae, you will enjoy lunch at a local area restaurant. Following lunch, proceed to Epidaurus known for its stunning ancient theater. One of the most important sanctuaries in the ancient world, Epidaurus was dedicated to the God of Medicine, Asklepios. The world-famous Theatre of Epidaurus, built in the 4th century B.C. is a marvel of harmony and acoustics and the best preserved ancient theater in Greece. Built in limestone, the theater seats 12,000 spectators. After your visit to EpIdaurus, you will re-board your coach and return to your ship in Piraeus.




Awesome experience.

We had 5 in our family of all ages for our recent trip to Greece. We wanted to see Athens, Mykonos and Santorini. I reached out to Anastasia with our budget and a rough idea of what we wanted to do. I cannot say enough about how helpful she was. She helped arrange the whole trip and everything flowed perfectly. She was also available during the trip to help guide us if we had questions about travel. It was a truly memorable experience without all the stress of when I try to plan trips myself. I wish I could use her for every trip I ever take.

Fabulous trip and attention to detail!

Anthony Alagiah with Antelope Travel planned the perfect family trip for us in June 2023. Anthony was a pleasure to work with, he communicated in detail and was very responsive to any questions I had and even stayed in touch while we were in Greece.
This was our first visit to Greece and he patiently guided me during the planning process and planned perfect itineraries for Athens, the islands and the mainland so we could experience a variety of different parts of Greece. Keeping three teenage boys engaged and interested isn't always easy but all of Anthony's tours, tour guides and activities worked perfectly for all of us!
We had many air, land and sea transfers and Anthony's planning and his partners ensured that everything went smoothly for us.
We were referred to Anthony from friends and I highly recommend him! I have now referred other friends to him, as thanks to his expertise, we had a fantastic family trip to Greece.
Athens, Santorini, Naxos, Meteori, Delphi, Athens
