Argolis Sparta Mystras Tour - 2 Days Tour


1st Day: Athens, Corinth canal, ancient Corinth, Nafplion, Sparta Athens minivan tour will drive you along the coastal road of the Saronic Gulf until we reach the Corinth Canal which joins the Saronic Gulf and the Gulf of Corinth (short stop). Our tour continues and shortly we will reach the ancient city of Corinth (visit) where St. Paul lived and preached for 18 months. Back in the ancient times Corinth was amongst the wealthiest cities. The ruins of this once splendid city lie high up on a hill above the modern town, overlooking both the Corinth and the Saronicos Gulfs.

In fact, ancient Corinth owed it’s wealth and it’s power to its advantageous position being between two harbors, (Lechaion in the Corinthian Gulf and Kechreae on the Saronic Gulf ). The principal sights include the Temple Apollo (6th C.B.C), the fountain of Pirene, the Market place, Theater the Odeum. Visit Isthmus, the site of the ancient port of Kechreai where St. Paul disembarked to Ephesus. Visit Mycenae with it’s Cyclopean walls, Agamemnon’s Palace (acropolis) and the tomb of Clytemnestra and also the tomb of Atreus, and the Lions Gate. Athens taxi tours will drive you to the first Capital city of modern Greece Nafplion. After lunch visit the Venetian fortress of Palamidi and we will drive to Sparta. Dinner & overnight in Sparta.

2nd Day: Sparta, Mistras, Corinth canal, Athens In the morning we will drive you to visit the sites of ancient Sparta and Byzantine fortified town of Mistras. Sparta was founded by the Dorian’s in the 9th century B.C. and in the next few years it developed into the most powerful military city in Greece, thanks to the efficient laws, perfected by the law-giver Lycurgus. The Spartans deferred from the rest of the Greeks in culture, and the way of life.

The Spartans character were mostly military, the life of the citizen was dedicated to serving the country, and the art of war. Mistras, was once a glittering fortress of the Byzantine Empire, with Palaces, houses, monasteries, and churches founded in the 13th century during the Frankish occupation of the Peloponnese. Mistras is now a huge museum of architecture, sculpture and decorative art. After lunch we’ll drive back to ATHENS ending yet another one of our spectacular tours.
