Our Mycenae Nemea wine taste and Nafplion day tour starts by driving out of the city along the scenic coastal road towards west.
Our first stop is the impressive Corinth Canal where you can take pictures and enjoy the breathtaking view by walking on the bridge of the Canal. After 45 minutes driving through beautiful villages and passing by orange tree fields and vineyards we will arrive to Mycenae. The ancient citadel of Mycenae was the kingdom of glorious Agamemnon and the Mycenean civilization was one of the most important pillars in the Greek history. In the archaeological site you will admire the Cyclopean walls of the citadel, you will walk through the Lion Gate (symbol of the Mycenean civilization), and see important Mycenean tombs.
You will also visit the archaeological museum and a little further down you will be impressed by the tomb of King Agamemnon. Continuing our Mycenae Nemea wine taste and Nafplion day tour we will head to one of the best wineries in Nemea. The whole area is full of vineyards and its easy to understand that wine production is very important for the entire region. Expert winemakers will introduce you to the famous Greek wine and you will taste many varieties and also you can purchase your favorite taste.
After wine tasting we will drive you to historical Nafplion. You will enjoy your lunch in a local restaurant and after lunch you will admire historical buildings, explore the beautiful small alleys of the town and enjoy your walk in the seaside area of the town.
Right after we will drive you to the fortress of Palamidi which was built by the Venetians and its located above the town. You will enter the fortress and you will be amazed by the panoramic view of the town. This was our last stop and our tour will end by driving you back to Athens.
