Argos Things to Do
Built during the 12th century, this castle was captured by the Crusaders, but in 1388 the Republic of Venice took possession. The Ottomans plundered the castle in 1397 and most of the population were taken as slaves. Later on the Venetians came back and settled in with settlers from Albania.View from the castle is wonderful and you can see much...more
Next to the sea, to the direction to Nafplio, there are a lot of clubs and musical centres, very close to each other. Most of them are open during the summer, as this favorite one ("GOA")...Related to:
Argos Warnings and Dangers
Not a warning really, but an odd situation!
I'd tasted local beers in Greece upto this point. Mythos in Athens, and Alfa in Delphi.
So, I wanted to support local brews here too, not to say that they don't taste good - they're nice :)
But, late at night, my Dad wanted to retreat to his room, and so I was on the prowl to buy two local bottles. I went all around the square, and even several streets out in each direction, but no store could help! They all sold foreign beers, especially Amstel & Heineken!!
Strange! We ended up drinking yogurt instead!!Related to:

It is one of the biggest ancient theaters, 20.000 people could watch the performances in antiquity! It surely was the largest in ancient Greece. The ruins of the theater put into the shade the roman baths and the conservatoire (4th century, 100 m far from the theater).You can also visit the Archaeological Museum of the city.more
