Day 24: Corinth & Mycenae


Another early morning start. After arriving in Athens, we left for the Peloponnese. Our first stop was  breakfast at the Isthmus where we saw the Corinth Canal separating Attica from the Peloponnese. This was followed by the ancient city of Corinth, whose Roman remains we still see today as well as an early Temple to Apollo.

After Corinth we drove to Mycenae, the center of Mycenaean Civilization and the Palace of Agamemnon.

After lunch we went to a ceramics workshop, where everyone was able to create a piece of art.

Finally we ended our day with dinner at yiayia's (Michalis' mother) house in Mycenae.
