Athens- Mycenae                                 Duration: ~ 1.5 hours | 100 % on-road | distance covered: ~120 km

After taking a scenic drive along the coastal road of the Saronic Gulf, you will come to the ancient city of Mycenae home of the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon. Right in the middle of a dream-like but nevertheless wild landscape, which softens as we heads down south towards the Argolic bay, reigns the mythical Mycenean Acropolis which has the absolute control over the valley of Argos. The Ionic hillock of Mycenae, with the deep, abrupt and steep gorges that surround it, enchants the visitors with its dominating character. The scenery, with its huge cliffs and rocks designed by the masterful hand of nature, seems as the most appropriate setting for the unraveling of the tragic family of Atreus. We visit the tomb of Agamemnon, the Palace and the Lionesses Gate.


Mycenae – Epidauros        Duration: ~ 1.5 hours | 20 % on-road, 80 % off-road | distance covered: ~50 km

Crossing the ancient (offroad) tracks of Agamemnon we arrive to Epidaurus. The world heritage listed city is reputed to be the birthplace of Apollo's son Asklepios, the healer and was the most celebrated healing center of the classical world. Epidaurus is most famous for its theatre, one of the best preserved classical Greek buildings and still used today due to its amazing acoustics. We visit Asklipio of Epidauros, the birthplace of medicine, which was practiced as power and was given to humans as knowledge of God.


Epidauros - Moni Augou         Duration: ~ 1 hour | 50 % on-road, 50 % off-road | distance covered: ~30 km

We drive "off the beaten track" using our Land Rovers, following the dirt track that leads to the quite mysterious and relatively young monastery of Avgo, which is built into the rock during the 17th century. Due to its location, was used as a fortress by the Greeks during the years of the Turkish domination. We enjoy the unique views down to the valley of Argolida and have a light snack and coffee before we continue to Nauplio.


Moni Augou - Nauplio            Duration: ~ 1 hour | 70 % on-road, 30 % off-road | distance covered: ~40 km

With its breathtaking views of Akronauplia, Nauplio will be our last stop before we return back to Athens.
The old city with its numerous tile-roofs interrupted here and there by perennial trees' tops, the churches' belfries with the unique Bourdzi standing like a stationary ship amidst the waters of the serene harbor.
Full of fig trees hanging from the rocks- the stunningly beautiful view of the Nauplio Gulf and the beach of Arvanitia, hides under the dominant presence of Palamidi.

Nauplio – Athens                                    Duration: ~ 2 hours| 100 % on-road | distance covered: ~140 km

We leave Nauplio late in the afternoon heading to Athens and return to the departure point.
