Private Peloponnese & Wine Tour from Athens

This tour will take us to the major sites of the Peloponnese, both ancient and modern, from the Homeric city of Mycenae, to Epidauros, Palamidi Castle in Nafplio and the Corinth Canal.
The kingdom of Mycenae was one of the first great centres of the Greek culture; settlement on this site dates back to the second millennium BC. According to Homer, Mycenae was the seat of Agamemnon, who led the Greeks against the Trojans to take back Helen, the wife of his brother Menelaus.You will see the Lion Gate, which formed the entrance to the royal court and palace.
We will also travel to Epidaurus and see the world-renowned Epidaurus theatre. Built in the 4th century BC, it is famous for its acoustics, which are so perfect that words spoken on stage can be heard perfectly wherever you are in the audience.
Stepping forward in history, we will see the Palamidi Castle in Nafplio, built by the Venetians and famous for supposedly having 999 steps.
