ITINERARY

 

Rewind to classical Greece on a private day trip to ancient Corinth and Nafplio from Athens. Cross the Corinth Canal to the ruins of Greco-Roman Corinth, a powerful city-state in antiquity. Tour the streets and monuments independently, and perhaps climb the Acrocorinth rock to see its crumbled temple. Lastly, enjoy free time in the seaport of Nafplio for lunch and sightseeing. Customizable itinerary, private transport, and Athens hotel or port pickup and drop-off included
 

From your hotel or cruise ship terminal you will travel in style in one of our new model black Mercedes E Class or AudiA6 vehicles with full leather & WiFi as your informative driver takes you north from Athens and through relaxing countryside for around 1-hour before arriving at the archaeological site of Ancient Corinth. Take the time you need to wander its preserved streets, temples, and markets. See the Temple of Apollo, Roman baths and the step from where St. Paul preached to the Corinthians, along with a visit to its museum. If you request, and are able to navigate the inclines and rough paths, you may be able to ascend to the large fortified Acrocorinth, which sits above the site at over 500 meters high, so you can experience the magnificent panoramic views, which stretch to the sea and Gulf of Corinth. For lunch, you'll drive through olive groves, and orange plantations along the sea to the historical and medieval seaport of Nafplion, under dominating hilltop castle of Palamidi. After lunch, in one of the many seaside restaurants with a view to Bourtzi Castle, round your day off wondering the charming streets of the Venetian old town before your return. A private tour exclusive to your group allows flexibility, the tour is carried out with an experienced English-speaking tour driver. The tour will go at your own pace, and provide all the essential modern, historical context along the way to help you make the most of your time.
