Sep 19, 2015 - Corinth, Epidaurus and Mycenae

Woke very early this morning as we needed to get down to breakfast and finish before 8.15 when the car was being delivered to the hotel for us. Great spread of the usual eggs, bacon, breads, fruits and cereals available for us so we can fill up with a good hearty breakfast which will last us through to this evening maybe with a coffee or some beverage at one of our stops Weather quite muggy and promises to be a warm one. Made our way out of Piraeus quite easily with the help of GPS and made our way along the very good freeway towards...

Nov 17, 2014 - Greece November 2014 - part 12

Running close to the end of our whirlwind tour of Ancient Sites, we headed off to Mycenae which was the main centre of the Mycenaean world and gave its name to a period and a civilisation that evolved throughout the entire Greek world between the 16th and 12th c BC and spread to all the known sites of this period in the Mediterranean basin. The Mycenean acropolis, dominating the surrounding area and the Argive plain, uniquely placed to control the communication routes in all directions – to the Peloponnese and to mainland Greece – and...

Oct 13, 2014 - Day 1 - Mycenae

Our last stop on Day 1 of the bus tour was in Mycenae. The ruins were fascinating and the Tomb of Agamemnon was awesome. It was a pretty hot day and it felt good to return to the bus and head to dinner and our hotel in Olympia.

Oct 21, 2010 - A door to the ancient world

The good news was that the night before we had gathered the essential items from our large bags and repacked two small duffels for our 3 days on the road. The bad news was that we still had to walk the ever sloping hill from the Hotel Tempi to the Amalia Hotel in order to meet the bus for departure on our 3 Day Classic tour of Greece. A bagel sandwich and sugar pretzel thing later, we were on the bus and ready to go. Right at 8:30am, the bus pulled forward. . . about 8ft. where we waited for another 25 minutes for our tour guide to arrive....

Nov 6, 2007 - Asini Beach

We arrived late at this little town, and with the hotel right on the waterfront, it is beautiful. It is a place we could have stayed a little longer in. Looks like you can hire little boats and row out to the islands off shore. However, it is only a pitstop until we get to Athens tomorrow.

Aug 23, 2007 - Micenas

Micenas debe haber sido la segunda gran civilizacion griega. Aunque el sitio no es muy grande, su influencia ya en los 1600's - 1100's AC se extendia por buena parte del sur de Grecia. La ciudad en si estaba en la punta de un cerro, toda amurallada. Lamentablemente no queda mucho, aunque estan haciendo mucha restauracion. Aqui fue donde reinaba Agamenon, el que comando' el ataque a Troya en los 1100's AC. Se pueden ver algunas casas, teatro, la esplanada del palacio, las murallas, tumbas en forma conica, y un tunel que llevaba a una fuente...
