Description

After breakfast, we will meet at hotel Titania lobby, time 09:00, and will depart with our buses for a full day excursion. A unique experience. We will start our excursion to the Peloponnese with a tour of the City of Ancient Corinth. Here, under the shadow of the towering Acropolis, St. Paul preached and lived for two years. The vigorous and mostly Gentile Church he founded here in AD 50 caused him much grief and prompted him to write, at least, four letters to them. Visit the ruins of the ancient city where Paul worked with Aquila and Priscilla. See the remains of the first century shops, the agora where Paul’s trial by Gallio took place, the Fountain of Peirene, Temple of Apollo and the Bema.

Afterwards we will depart for Nafplio. A popular destination for Greek and foreign tourists alike, one of the most beautiful towns in the world, which actually was the first capital of the modern Greek state. Named after Nafplios, son of Poseidon, and home of Palamidis, their local hero of the Trojan war and supposedly the inventor of weights and measures, lighthouses, the first Greek alphabet and the father of the Sophists. Time for lunch.

Continue on to visit the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus. The UNESCO’S world heritage listed monument is reputed to be the birthplace of Apollo’s son Asklepios, the healer and was the most celebrated healing center of the classical world. Epidaurus is probably most famous for its theatre, one of the best preserved classical Greek buildings and still used today due to its amazing acoustics.

Our full day tour returns to Athens, and Titania hotel in the late afternoon. Estimated arrival time around 20:00
