What You Can Expect

Mycenae and Epidaurus Day Trip from Athens

Theatre at Epidaurus, Greece

After taking a scenic drive along the coastal road of the Saronic Gulf, you will come to the ancient city of Mycenae home to the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon. Visit the tomb of Agamemnon, the Palace and the Lionesses Gate.

Stop off at the picturesque town of Nauplia before arriving in Epidaurus. The world heritage listed city is reputed to be the birthplace of Apollo's son Asklepios, the healer and was the most celebrated healing center of the classical world. Epidaurus is probably most famous for its theatre, one of the best preserved classical Greek buildings and still used today due to its amazing acoustics.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

A long day (13 hours) but well worth it. We stopped for a rest break at the Korinth canal then after Mycenae stopped for lunch which was a 3 course Meal in a lovely country Hotel. Our tour guide was patient, amazing and extremely informative!!.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

Excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable, and you felt you were able to see the entire site (albeit a little rushed at times). As our son has diabetes we chose not to include the lunch option. However, this meant that as lunch was at an isolated hotel, we had to sit in the car park for an hour. There was a photo stop (for about 5 minutes) after lunch in a lovely town, which would have been nicer for us to have spent an hour rather than the car park. Overall, a very good trip, but beware if you do not choose the lunch option you will have to bring your own food with you, and eat it in a car park.
