Do not miss this rare and unique opportunity to visit in one day the 3.500 years old ruins of the astonishing Mycenaic civilization together with a beautiful and very picturesque Greek Island of the Saronic Golf Leave by the coastal road along the Saronic Gulf to the Corint Canal (short stop). The Corinth Canal is a canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island.
Drive to Mycenae, the Homeric city of Atrides, the city “rich in gold”. Dating back to the second century B.C., Mycenae was one of the major centers of Greek civilization and a military stronghold which dominated much of southern Greece. Visit the Lion’s Gate, the Cyclopean Walls and the Royal Tombs of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra’s. Continue driving on for the seaside village of Galatas. From there a small ferryboat will take you in a few minutes at the Island of Poros. Free time for strolling in the beautiful promenade. Lunch by the seaside in a Greek traditional Tavern (optional).
Early afternoon departure by the same route.
