Prefecture of Argolida Things to Do

  • Visit Ancient Corinth

    This was one of the Argolis site I enjoyed the least.. maybe because we visited it around midday and it was boiling hot! The entrance fee in 2011 was 6 Euros.The ruins are sparse and there is not much left standing because of the numerous and frequent earthquake, but apostole Paul was here and you are looking at the same stone he was looking at....

  • Acrocorinth

    This massive castle can be seen from the archeological site of Ancient Corinth and it is well worth a visit. Follow the direction for Acrocorinth and drive up the hairpin road that lead to the entrance. There is a parking space near the entrance. Unfortunately I could only see it from the outside because, even if my guide say it was open from 8am...

  • Corinth canal

    The Canal is a very impressive engineering structure. It cut the cliff for about 6 kilometer long and over 50 meter deep. It it sad to think that, after all the work it required to be built, right now its width and the water dept of only 8 meter does not allow the modern cargo ship to navigate it.Reaching the canal is somewhat confusing, the signal...

  • Visit Epidaurus Theater and...

    The theater is a real masterpiece! it is still used and famous for the impressive acoustic. In fact the tour guide use to rip a little piece of paper from the stage to demonstrate it, everybody in the theater can hear it! It was built in the third century BC with a capacity of over 10,000 people.During the summer months the Ellenic festival take...

  • Atreus Tresury

    The name is misleading as this site was in fact a tholon's tomb. It is dated around 1300 BC and it is truly impressive. The majestic entrance take you inside a dome structure, very tall. My guide said it was the largest dome structure on earth for over a thousand year. Looking carefully you can still see the bronze nail who use to hold the ancient...

  • Visit Mycenae

    Mycenae is one of the famous archaeological site in Peloponnese area. The name is evocative of the greek history and it is well worth a visit. Beside the famous lion gate and the impressive walls there are not much still standing, but you can see the perimeter of all the buildings and with a good guidebook you can easily understand the layout of...

  • Nafplion

    Nafplion is centrally positioned in the Argolida peninsula and it offer a great base to explore the area. It is a historical and charming little town with a lot to offer. The center is pedestrian and it have a interesting architecture. There are many buildings with Venetian and Ottoman influence. The Palamidi fortress dominate it from the top of...

  • The Cyclopean walls of Tiryns

    Another Mycenaean archaeological site is Tiryns or Tirintha and this hill fort is located north of Nafplio. It was constructed with Cyclopean masonry thousands of years ago and reached its height between 1400 and 1200 BC until the end of the Mycenaean period. The reason behind the name Cyclopean masonry was because they believe that only giant...

  • Mycenaean ruins

    While driving from town to town, I found a number of signs saying "Mycenaean Bridge". Apparently, these ruins were built during the Mycenaean period and you will come across several bridges, walls, etc in Argolida. They were constructed out of huge stones thousands of years ago. Amazing that it lasted this long! This one was spotted between Nafplio...

  • Ancient Mycenae

    The ancient acropolis of Mycenae sits atop a hill and the main center of the Mycenaean world. It is quite a imposing site as you approach the fortified palace made of giant Cyclopean walls. Many kings ruled from here, including Agamemnon, from Homer's "Iliad". The Mycenaean was a force to be reckoned with until the 1100 BC when it collapse and the...

  • Charming town of Nafplio

    Nafplio was once the capital of modern Greece and is probably the prettiest town I've been to in the country. Set by the coast of the Argolic Gulf (Argolikos Bay), it is very picturesque and has many historical landmarks like the Palamidi Fortress & Bourtzi Castle to name a few.You can make Nafplio as a base to visit its attractions as well as...

  • Epidaurus Theater

    Epidaurus Theater is one of the well preserved and functional amphitheaters in Greece, if not the most famous. The theater was designed by Polykleitos the Younger in the 4th century BC and later extended by the Romans. In July (when I was there), the amphitheater was the venue of the Epidaurus music festival.Epidaurus is built on the slope of a...

  • Vivari

    Being totally averse to busy tourist resorts, we avoided Tolon and Drepano on our journey to Kilada.To get to this fishing town you have to travel east and then south and finally west. It's quite a distance so after an hour or so we were ready to stop for a drink. We opted for Vivari which was a pleasant, almost lagoon-like anchorage on a long sea...

  • Epidavros

    One of THE most visited ancient sites in Greece. Far too popular for it's own good.It's setting is beautiful, amongst pine and oleander trees.Yes, it's fairly spectacular but I'm afraid the immodest budding thespians who felt everyone wanted to hear them perform spoilt it for us. I know it's the norm and people do it because the accoustics are so...
