A little about the sites you'll see today:

Nauplia the first capital of modern Greece with its Venetian fortress of PALAMII and the fortified islet of BOURTZI (short stop). Continue to Epidaurus and visit the ancient theatre , world famous for it's outstanding acoustics.Mycenea :

Epidaurus was independent of Argos and not included in Argolis until the time of the Romans. With its supporting territory, it formed the small territory called Epidauria
Reputed to be the birthplace of Apollo the healer, Epidaurus was known for its sanctuary situated about five miles (8 km) from the town, as well as its theater which is once again in use today.
The asclepieion at Epidaurus was the most celebrated healing center of the Classical world, the place where ill people went in the hope of being cured. To find out the right cure for their ailments, they spent a night in the enkoimeteria, a big sleeping hall. In their dreams, the god himself would advise them what they had to do to regain their health.
Even after the introduction of Christianity and the silencing of the oracles, the sanctuary at Epidauros was still known as late as the mid 5th century, although as a Christian healing center.

Mycenae : In the second millennium BC Mycenae was one of the major centres of Greek civilization, a military stronghold which dominated much of southern Greece. The period of Greek history from about 1600 BC to about 1100 BC is called Mycenaean in reference to Mycenae.
Although the citadel was built by Greeks, the name is not thought to be Greek, but is rather one of the many pre-Greek place names inherited by the immigrant Hellenes

After the tour, we will provide a transfer back to the harbor.
