Argos Things to Do

  • Larissa Castle

    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...

  • Lerna

    Lerna is a very interesting site. An apsidal building was found there located underneath a large tumulus. There are different theories as to why it existed and why the tumulus was erected over it after its destruction. There are also smaller buildings around the large apsidal building.

  • Argos Museum

    The museum at Argos is worth a visit. The armor shown on the main Argos page is one of only a few complete sets found in Greece.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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")...

    Time for clubbing!

Argos Warnings and Dangers

  • Durfun's Profile Photo

    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!!

  • Egypt?

    It is a... pyramid, although a small one (4th century BC). You can find it if you go to the village Elliniko, near Argos. It is said that it was rather a grave or a small fort which was protecting the road to Arcadia (the nearby prefecture).

  • Oranges...

    The fecund land of the large region around Argos offers thousands tons of oranges, which basicly are exported. These trees belong to me... Do you want to send you some?

  • The ancient theater

    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.
