Argolida

The Argolida county is famous all over the world for its history and for the archaeological sites of Mycenae and Ancient Theatre of Epidavros. These wonderful historic monuments have stood for 2000+ years and are a joy to visit at any time of the year along with the Temple of Asclepios and pretty seaside village of New Epidavros. At Mycenae the Lion's Gate and the beehive Tomb of Agamemnon are huge attractions to visitors from all over the world.

The site of Ancient Tiryns is a world heritage site just outside of Nafplion which shows us excellent examples of Cyclopean walls, catacombs and drainage systems, a fascinating site for all to see and just 15 mins away from Tolo. During the same era as Mycenae and Tiryns, Ancient Asini, which is just literally a few hundred metres from the Esperia Hotel, acted as the port for the Mycenaean community as Homer reminds us in his books the Iliad and the Odyssey.

Nafplion, 10 minutes away by bus or by car, was the first capital of Greece when it was liberated from the Turks. It is full of historical monuments and architecture from the various different occupying forces over the years. There are narrow streets with overhanging balconies of Venetian style, lined with shops and cafeterias, statues of heroes who have come from o fought for the liberation of Greece. Visit one of the museums, the Archaeological Museum in the main square, the Folklore Museum and the Military Museum. There are a number of fortresses in Nafplion, the Palamidi towering over the whole city, the Acronafplia and the Bourtzi, the island situated in the harbour. Nafplion is a cosmopolitan town that has a magical quality, a great nightlife and a must during  visit to the area.
