About
Be amazed by the modern engineering masterpiece of the Corinth Canal (Isthmus Canal). Explore the large citadel of Acrocorinth. Through its imposing entrance gates, you will enter the castle and you will discover its hidden gems. You will also experience the spectacular panoramic views which will amaze you. Witness the ancient town of Corinth, one of the richest towns in Ancient Greece, where St. Paul lived and preached for two years. We will visit the ruins of the ancient city in which you can see the remains of the Agora and one of the most outstanding monuments of pre –Roman period, the temple of Apollo. Be amazed by the kingdom of Agamemnon, Mycenae and relive the expedition to Troy.  Explore the Temple of Hera Akraia and St. Johns “tiny” church at Perachora.  Swim amongst the ancient ruins at Ancient Heraion. For the more adventurous, you will have a chance to do some “cliff-jumping” from the surrounding rocks, as the sea in the sanctuary cove is both deep and clear.  Discover the Malagavi Lighthouse, one of the oldest stone lighthouses in Greece built in 1897 that is still in operation.

We were delighted to be hosted by Tas for a memorable day trip from Athens in Mercedes comfort, with knowledgeable and friendly banter from a dual Greek-Australian! We were happy to take Tas’s local knowledge and advice to vary our itinerary, visiting Nafplio instead of the Blue Lake, considering the winter weather and short days.

Tas imparted his extensive historical and archeological knowledge along the journey, leaving us at strategic points to enter the museums and archeological sites at Ancient Corinth and Mycenae, where we enjoyed our self tours at our own pace. All of the sites and museums were extremely well set up with amazing relics and informative descriptions in Greek and English. We also enjoyed the flexibility of an unscripted trip to the heights of Acrocorinth, with spectacular views of the gulf. We finished the day with a trip to the original capital of modern Greece, Nafplio, now a charming port town, where we had a delicious meal of local specialties, meatballs (keftedakia) and moussaka!

In summary, a relaxing, fascinating and educational day in great comfort and company!
