Greece – Sanctuary of Asklepios at Epidaurus

Explore two UNESCO World Heritage sites in Greece during this Mycenae and Epidaurus day trip from Athens. See the Tomb of Agamemnon in Mycenae, the outstanding theatre of Epidaurus and more as you journey back into Ancient Greece.

The Birthplace of Ancient Greece

Mycenae was once the most powerful kingdom of the ancient Greek world. Rising to prominence in 1300 BC, this was the city from where King Agamemnon launched his war against Troy. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage site, with its most famous features being the Lion’s Gate and the magnificent tombs. If you are only staying in Athens for a few days, it might be difficult to reach Mycenae by yourself. My suggestion is that you might want to consider an organised day trip from Athens. This way, you can also see Epidaurus, Corinth Canal and Nafplio.
