You will start your moto tour via the Saronic Gulf coastal route and you will have a brief stop at the Corinth Canal. A marvel of architecture constructed in the 1800’s alloyed the connection of the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island. The canal was dug through the Isthmus at sea level and has no locks. It is 6.4 kilometers in length and only 21.4 meters wide at its base.
Then via the Nemea valley with the world famous wineries you will visit the kingdom of Mycenae. This ancient site is where King Agamemnon, leader of the Greek army in the Trojan War of Homer’s Illiad, ruled. You will visit the archaeological site as well as the museum that holds some spectacular ancient treasures.
Then you will continue to the first capital of Greece; Nafplion. One of the most scenic places in Greece full of alleys, stone paved roads and charming cafes will be your overnight destination. The evening is free to explore the area, taste local delicacies and take a stroll around the majestic castle of Akronafplia. The next day you will visit the Akronafplia Castle (Palamidi as it is called), the island of Bourtzi that served as a prison during Ottoman Empire as well as see the first Greek Parliament located very near the Syntagma Square of Nafplio. Then, you will depart for Epidaurus and visit the ancient site where the world famous Theatre still stands and accommodates high class performances in the summer time. Your moto tour continues via a wonderful route overlooking the Saronic Gulf before reaching Athens. A wonderful 2 day motorcycle tour experience full of amazing landscapes, history and sights.
