Argolid lies to the northeast of the Peloponnese. It is a region with monuments which cover all periods of greek history. One of them is Mycenae, a prehistoric fortress with cyclopean walls and seat of Agamemnon, leader of the Greeks in the Trojan expedition. In the fortress one can see the famous Lion Gate, the royal tombs and the ruins of the palace on the very top with view over the plain and the argolic gulf. Outside the fortress there are the royal beehive tombs with the best example being the so called “Tomb of Agamemnon”. About 10km away Nafplion is located, a port city with an intense venetian character, result of a long venetian occupation. In less than one hour one can reach Epidaurus, the most religious hospital of ancient Greece and place of worship of Esculapius, god of medicine, dated to the classic period. The highlight of Epidaurus is the ancient theatre, the most famous and best preserved theatre of the greek world and nowadays seat of a summer drama festival.
