Nice day trip
There is a lot for one day trip. I liked the sites at Epidaurus and Mycenae but there wasn't enough time to do anything at Nafplio. Launch there was very average as well. Our guide was a knowledgeable and nice lady. And the main downside of the trip was the coach. Seat wasn't comfortable for me as I have a bad back.

Fascinating tour
There were too many extraordinary places to choose only one. Olympia was fantastic. So was Mycenae and Epidaurus. Meteora was, literally, breathtaking

Q:What is Mycenae famous for?
A:Mycenae is famous as it was once one of the largest and most influential cities in ancient Greece and the home to King Agamemnon, who led the fight in the Trojan War. The city’s influence was so significant that historians refer to a whole period of history as the Mycenaean period, with the city defining the culture of that era.
Q:Why visit Mycenae?
A:Tourists visit Mycenae today as ruins of this ancient hilltop city are still standing, allowing visitors to picture what it must have once been like. Visitors can also learn about the history of Mycenae at its museum and see artifacts, including an item believed to be the death mask of Agamemnon.
