EXCURSIONS:

Spetses Island

Spetses is a small but very picturesque island with a multitude of eucalyptus and pine forests, mosaic streets and magnificent beaches. Earlier known as Pityousa, meaning “pine-clad”, Spetses also boasts of a lot of herbs and plants, of which spices are made. The island has its ancient sea traditions. Here you will not see any transport, except for bicycles and mopeds, it is forbidden here. It makes the island ecologically clean and attracts tourists. The symbol of the island is the image of heroine Lascarina Bubulina, a rich widow, who after the death of her husband during the war of 1821 for independence assumed command of the ship and fought against the Turks, with which she gained reputation and love among the citizens of Spetses. On the Dapia Quay, there is a monument to this brave woman. There is also a house-museum, dedicated to her that we will visit. No less interesting is the museum located in the mansion of Hadji Janis Meksi. Here, there is a collection of historical artifacts and some of them date back more than 400 years.

Argolida. Mycenae - Epidaurus - Nafplion

The tour starts in Mycenaea. Mycenaea stretches in the very center of Argos, which is also called the pasture for
horses, in the north-east of Argolida. Mycenaea were praised by Homer in his poem Iliad; they were and built in the
elevation between the two mountains and dominate over all the roads, even those that run to the sea 15 km away
from here. For good reason, the whole Mycenaean civilization was called after the town and indeed, due to its very
advantageous location, handicraft and trade grew very rapidly.  Nearby, there is ancient Epidaurus (Greek Ἐπίδαυρος),
a small ancient Greek town of Peloponnesus on the shores of the Saronic Gulf. It is known for its antique amphitheater
 with exceptional acoustics. Until now, plays by ancient Greek playwrights are performed on this stage.
And, finally, there is Nafplion, a town on the Peloponnese peninsula, which had been the first capital of Greece in
1828-1833. It is one of the most picturesque towns in Greece. According to  the ancient Greek mythology, the town
was founded by Nauplius, the son of Poseidon and Amymone, who called it “Nauplia”.
