Drive along the coastal  road  of  the Saronic Gulf to MYCENAE (Visit) . 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.

Then trough ARGOS on to NAUPLIA 1st capital of Greece in 1829 – After lunch depart to EPIDAURUS (Visit)

On the headland called "Nesi" at Palaia Epidaurus, the theatre of the ancient city is quite well-preserved, in the shape it acquired during the latter years of its function. Apart from a few rows of seats, the cavea is made of limestone with poros staircases.

Until now, nine cunei with eighteen rows of seats have been excavated, which originally could accommodate about 2000 spectators. All the benches and thrones of the theatre carry inscriptions with the names of the donors while implying a direct relationship of the monument with the cult of Dionysus.

The theater is marveled for its exceptional acoustics, which permit almost perfect intelligibility of unamplified spoken word from the proscenium or scene to all 12,000 spectators, regardless of their seating
