Nemea and Nafplio: Private Wine and History Tour

1. Nemea and Nafplio: Private Wine and History Tour

The Nemea region of Peloponnese is a highly recommended trip both to savor the unique local wine varieties paired with food delicacies, and to see some interesting cultural spots that will introduce you to the history of Greece. Nemea is approximately 120 kilometers and only 1 hour away from Athens. It is worth visiting to taste a high quality Greek Agiorgitiko PDO red wine. Agiorgitiko, a name that comes from St. George (Agios Georgios in Greek), is one of the two most recognizable Greek red varieties along with Xinomavro of Naoussa (located in northern Greece). The area is divided into three sub-zones, classified by altitude where you can find various wineries and taste the different styles of Agiorgitiko together with other Greek wine varieties. Other varieties cultivated in the area are the pink-skinned Moschofilero and Roditis, the white Assyrtiko, Malagousia, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. They also produce red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. On this tour you will combine a premium wine tasting and introduction and the philosophy of the wine production in the region with a cultural visit of the old city of Nafplio, the original capital of Greece.

From Athens: Mycenae and Epidaurus Private Tour

2. From Athens: Mycenae and Epidaurus Private Tour

One hour drive away from Athens, in the area of Peloponnese and on our way to Mycenae you will be able to see the famous Corinth Canal. Here you will have a quick stop at the canal to admire this engineering marvel that connects the Aegean with the Ionian sea. After a brief stop at the Canal, you will continue towards Mycenae, one of the most important cities of ancient Greece. You will see the Mycenaean Acropolis, the tomb of Agamemnon and the ruins of the Cyclopean walls that protected this mighty city. You can also visit the Archaeological Museum of Mycenae. After exploring Mycenae you will continue to your last stop of the tour, the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus. This 4th-century-BC theater is one of the best-preserved Classical Greek structures in existence. Built of limestone is, without doubt, the highlight of Epidaurus area. It is renowned for its amazing acoustics; a coin dropped in the theater's center can be heard from the highest seat. The theater seats up to 14,000 people. Its entrance is flanked by restored Corinthian pilasters and the foundations of the ancient stage are beyond the circle. It's now used for performances of Ancient Greek drama during the annual Hellenic Festival.
