We start our One Day Tour and we will depart for the Peloponnese. Our first stop will be the Isthmus of Corinth, a narrow strip of land of 6 kilometres length, connecting Central Greece with the Peloponnese. We will have free time for photos. Then, we will visit Epidaurus. Epidaurus was a small city in ancient Greece at the Saronic Gulf. Epidaurus was known for its Sanctuary situated about five miles (8 km) from the town, as well as its theatre, which is once again in use today. The huge theatre that delighted Pausanias for its symmetry and beauty is used again today for dramatic and other performances. The theatre was designed by Polykleitos the Younger in the 4th century BC. The theatre is admired for its exceptional acoustics, which permit almost perfect intelligibility of unamplified spoken words from the proscenium to all 15,000 spectators, regardless of their seating. Then, we depart for the first capital of the Greek state during the period 1828-1833, Nafplion. We will have time to wander through the picturesque alleys of the city.
