The archaeological sites of Mycenae and Tiryns are the imposing ruins of the two greatest cities of the Mycenaean civilization, which dominated the eastern Mediterranean world from the 15th to the 12th century B.C. and played a vital role in the development of classical Greek culture. These two cities are indissolubly linked to the Homeric epics, the Iliad and the Odyssey , which have influenced European art and literature for more than three millennia.

Acro Corinth, approx. 80 km from Athens and located on a 575 meter high table mountain near the city of Corinth, is one of the oldest but least known acropolis in Greece. Because of the region’s unique geophysical location, the oldest settlement dates back to the Neolithic.  It was believed that the ruler of the fortress was also ruler of the entire Peloponnese. Even today, the Acro-Corinth fortress offers a breathtaking view of the isthmus and the city of Corinth.
