Today was a full day of sightseeing the old and new cities of Greece. Our day started off with a bus ride to the Corinth Canal with a neat starting point for our day!
Treasury of Arteus, the best preserved example of a tholos tomb, was the next stop on our tour. This place was constructed and used around 1250 BC and was built on an enourmous scale, as you can see in the picture of the entrance to the tomb.
But the outdoor adventure didn’t stop there, next we went up to the rest of the Mycane, which is known as the main center of the Mycanean world. This place was filled up various ruins that are known to be tholos tombs, grave circles, houses, and workshops. The climb was definitely worth the view this afternoon as well!
Our next stop was the scenic town of Nafplio. Our tour guide showed us around the city steeets then we were set free to do some exploring of our own. While some of us continued the theme of adventure through hiking to the remains of a castle, others of us took advantage of a new shopping expedition. Overall everyone had a great experience with the town and it’s great gelato!
After a full day of seeing some more of Greece, we cannot wait to see what is in store for us on our last full day here before leaving for London!
