Ancient Corinth
When Paul arrived in 51CE, the Corinth he saw was little more than 100 years old, but was five times as large as Athens and the capital of the province. Ancient Corinth founded in the 10th century BCE had been the richest port and the largest city in ancient Greece. Strategically located guarding the narrow isthmus that connects the Peloponesse to the mainland it was a powerful commercial centre near two seaports only 4 miles apart Lechaeum and Cenchreae . It had a population of 90.000 in 400 BC and 50 000 to 700 000 after the Romans built the new city.
Ancient Corinth was young,dynamic not hidebound by tradition with no dominant religious or intellectual tradition. The heart of the city, the forum, was filled with temples and shrines to the Roman Emperor and various members of his family,built alongside temples to the older Greek gods such as Apollo. Apollo's son, Asklepios, the god of healing had a shrine there as well as at Epidaurus, the ancient site of miracle healings.

A Unesco World Heritage Site described by Homer as a city 'rich in gold' was a fortified late Bronze Age city located between two hills on the Argolic plain of the Peloponesse.
The fortified royal residence of King Agamemnon ( leader of the Trojan War ) with mamoth Cyclopean walls dates from between the 14th and the 13th century BCE when the Mycenean civilization was at its peak of power, influence and artistic expression.
Situated on a rocky hill ( 40-50 meters high ) commanding the surrounding plain as far as the sea 15 km away, the site of Mycenae covered 30 000 sq. meters and has always been known throughout history.
Heinrich Schliemann believed in the historical truth of the Homeric stories and interpreted the site accordingly. In 1876 he discovered the magnificent treasures of grave circle A which included ancient shaft graves with their royal skeletons and spectacular graved goods.
Entrance to the acropolis is through the famous Lion Gate a 3 x 3 meter square doorway with an 18-ton lintel topped by two 3 meter high heraldic lions and a column altar. You will be amazed as you explore the acropolis making your way to the top where the royal palace once stood. The large palace structure built around a central hall, or Megaron is typical of Mycenean palaces. Other features included a secondary hall, many private rooms and a workshop complex.
The Treasury of Atreus,a monumental circular building with corbelled roof reaching a height of 135 meters and 14.6 meters in diameter and approached by a long walled and unroofed corridor 36 meters long and 6 meters wide is sure to leave you impressed.
One of the most fascinating museums is the Archaeological Museum at Mycenae. The museum is built next to the citadel at Mycenae. Many objects unearthed in the vicinity are exhibited in its three halls. It provides context to the excavations and is easily visited before ( recommended ) or after a tour of the archaeological site.

One of the most picturesque towns in the area of Argolis as well as one of the most romantic towns all over Greece. Nafplio was the first capital of the newly born Greek State after the 1821 War of Independance between 1823 and 1834.
The town declined during the Roman times and flourished again during the Byzantine times. Frankish Venetians and Turkish conquerors left their mark in the town and strongly influenced its culture architecture and traditions during the centuries.

In the very heart of the town stands Syntagma Square or Constitution Square where you can admire important historic buildings and monuments.You will admire two Turkish mosques, the first a Mutual Learning School and the second was home to the first Greek Parliament. The Archeological Museum and the Municipal Gallery are among the buildings that stand out.

ACRONAFPLIA is the historic rock at the foot of Palamidi hilL. Inhabited since prehistoric times, the peninsula consists of three levels among which stand three independant castles. It was there that the ancient acropolis was situated, fortified with Cyclopean walls.
The famous BOURTZI is the most photographed spot of Nafplio. The Venetian small fortress stands on the rocky islet of Agioi Theodoroi.

The prosperity brought by the Asclepeion enabled Epidaurus to construct civic monuments including the huge theater that delighted Pausanias for its symmetry and beauty . Among all the ancient theaters,Epidaurus theatre is the most beautiful and best preserved. The theater is admired for its exceptional acoustics which permit almost perfect intelligibility of unamplified spoken words from the skene to all 14 000 spectators regardless of their seating.
At Epidaurus,there was held one of the most important festivals of the ancient Greeks, the Asclepieia. They were held once every 4 years and the festive programme included drama,music and sports contests including horse racing. The actors were men only; even the female roles were played by men. Women were allowed to attend the performances but not to take part in them. The actors covered their faces with masks and used their voices and body movements as means of expression.
Epidaurus theater is used again today for dramatic and comic performances. Great actors have performed here among them the Greek soprano Maria Kallas, Isabella Rossellini, Gerard Depardieu and Kevin Spacey.
alongside temples to the older Greek gods such as Apollo. Apollo's son, Asklepios, the god of healing had a shrine there as well as at Epidaurus, the ancient site of miracle healings.

The Asclepeion of Epidaurus was the most celebrated healing center of the Classical World, the place where ill people went in the hope of being cured. To find out the right cure for their ailments they spent a night in the “enkoimeteria” a big sleeping hall. Found in the sanctuary there was a guest house for 160 guestrooms.
The tranquility of nature, the soft and clean lines of the surrounding mountains, the lush vegetation and the mineral springs in the vicinity appeared to be very important in the treatment of patients via the help of the priests.
Patients coming here accepted high quality medical services. This has been proved by the surgical tools found here which are exhibited in the Epidaurus Archaeological Museum.
