Spend 1.5 hours at Agamemnon’s kingdom to see the Cyclopean masonry, the Lion’s Gate and the Royal Tombs, including the Treasure of Atreus.
After a relaxing lunch break of 1.5 hours, make a pitstop at the seaport of Nauplia to see the imposing island of Bourtzi that once served as a home to executioners.
