A VOYAGE TO CORINTH IS A MUST-DO FOR HISTORY LOVERS. SEE EPIDAURUS, MYCENAE, AND OTHER KEY PLAYERS IN GREEK HISTORY.
Two mountains, each crowned by a medieval fortress, overlook Nafplio and the small island citadel that once protected a harbour is now lined with inviting restaurants, cafés, and small shops. Those in search of history will head to Epidaurus, site of the most famous of all the ancient theatres in Greece, with unique acoustics designed specifically for open-air performances. Spend time in Mycenae, city of Agamemnon, the Greek king who led his troops into battle against Troy. The city was rediscovered in 1876 by German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann by using landmarks from the text of Homer’s Iliad.Download An Explorer Guide +
