Argolis is a county steeped in legend and history. It was the heart of Greece from 1600 to 1100 BC under the Mycenaeans. Now, traces of that ancient civilization lie scattered across the region, in the shape of citadels, sanctuaries, myceanean tombs and ancient theaters. Amongst the best-known sites is Epidaurus famous for the Sanctuary of Asclepios and the ancient theater, and Mycenae, famous for the Tomb of Agamemnon and the Lion Gate. Equally important is the castle of Palamidi and the fortress island of Bourtzi at entrance of the port of Nafplio.
The picturesque seafront town of Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece, is a perfect holiday destination and a good base for exploring the surrounding countryside. Nafplio is a wonderful collection of paved alleys decorated with colorful flowers, neoclassical houses, historic churches, museums and many more sights to fill a week. It is a lovely place to explore with photo-perfect views around every corner and one of the most romantic places in Greece. It is also full of taverns, boutique hotels and guesthouses. The old town of Nafplio is a very popular destination which fills up on weekends and gets overcrowded in high season.
Argolis is full of pleasant surprises and a gateway to the Saronic Islands, Poros, Hydra and Spetses. It is the ideal destination, bringing past and present together in a seamlessly simple way.
