Ancient Corinthos - Mykinae – Nafplio - Epidavros - Delphi - Kalampaka – Meteora - Thermopiles (4 days)
Ancient Corinth, the original City of Corinth, was founded in the 10th Century BCE and was the largest city in ancient Greece. More importantly, Corinth was ancient Greece’s richest port. The Corinth Paul knew had been re-founded by Julius Caesar as a Roman colony in 44 BCE. Using Rome’s tried and true format for subduing conquered populations, the ″new″ Corinth was populated with conscripted Italian, Greek, Syrian, Egyptian and Judean freed slaves. Like Ancient Corinth, New Corinth thrived. It’s strategic location also brought thousands of settlers from all over the Mediterranean.

MYCENAE
Mycenae ″Rich in Gold″, the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon, first sung by Homer in his epics, is the most important and richest palatial centre of the Late Bronze Age in Greece. Its name was given to one of the greatest civilizations of Greek prehistory, the Mycenaean civilization, while the myths related to its history have inspired poets and writers over many centuries, from the Homeric epics and the great tragedies of the Classical period to contemporary literary and artistic creation. Perseus, son of Zeus and Danaos, daughter of Akrisios, king of Argos, is traditionally considered as its mythical founder. Pausanias reports that Perseus named the new city Mycenae after the pommel (mykes) of his sword, which fell there, or after the Perseia spring, discovered there under the root of a mushroom (mykes). According to the myth, Perseus’s descendants reigned at Mycenae for three generations after the last of them, Eurystheas, died childless.
NAFPLIO, an accessible town for disabled visitors
Nafplio, the capital of this district, was built, according to mythology, by Nafplio, the son of Poseidon and of Ammonia. The role of this city in the Greek history has been very important.

EPIDAURUS ,an Accessible town for disabled visitors
In the peaceful hinterland of Epidaurus, with its mild climate and abundant mineral springs, is the sanctuary of the god-physician Asklepios, the most famous healing centre of the Greek and Roman world. The sanctuary belonged to the small coastal town of Epidaurus, but its fame and recognition quickly spread beyond the limits of the Argolid. It is considered the birthplace of medicine and is thought to have had more than two hundred dependent spas in the eastern Mediterranean. Its monuments, true masterpieces of ancient Greek art, are a precious testimony to the practice of medicine in antiquity. Indeed they illustrate the development of medicine from the time when healing depended solely on the god until systematic description of cases and the gradual accumulation of knowledge and experience turned it into a science.
Delphi
At the foot of Mount Parnassos, lies the Pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi, which possessed the most famous oracle of ancient Greece. The sanctuary of Delphi, set within a most spectacular landscape, was regarded as the centre of the world for many centuries the cultural and religious centre and symbol of unity for the Hellenic world.

KALAMPAKA- METEORA
The Meteora are considered, second to Agios Oros, the greatest and longest standing monastic development from the time of the first Ascetic settlement up to today. From historical testimonies we conclude that the abbeys of Meteora were thirty in total. From these thirty abbeys, only six are in operation today. Most of these abbeys were founded in the 14th century. The name Meteora is modern ans is not reported by ancient writers. The name was given by Agios Athanassios of the Meteorite, owner of the abbey of Metamorphosis of Savior (Grand Meteoro). In the middle of the 14th century, the monk Nile assembled the monks that lived isolated in caves around the skiti of Doypianis, thus establishing the monasticism of the Meteora.
Thermopiles - The statue of Leonidas
In the historic pass of Thermopyles 18 km to the Southeast of Lamia the village of Thermopyles is built. It is famous for its hot water springs. Many historical events took place there. In 480 B.C. Greeks and Persians fought a battle. Leonidas and 300 Spartans took part, as well as 50 Myceneans and 70 Thespies. In 279 B.C. 24000 Greeks stood up to 170000 Galatians who managed to cross the narrow pass because somebody betrayed a secret path. Thus, Galatians attacked Greeks in the rear. This same treason had also ocuured in 480 B.C., when Efialtis made Persians know the same secret path. In 191 B.C., Antiohos defended against 40000 Romans but he was defeated. In 1941 Greek and Australian fighters defended themselves against German soldiers.
