Corinth Canal

Central Greece here I come....

We took the coastal road to the Corinth Canal then onward to visit the Theatre of Epidaurus (amphitheatre famous for its acoustics). The Theatre is still used today for shows, the theatre was in remarkable condition and a real eye opener for me. Just thinking back to the time when the theatre was built, really makes you wonder how people thought back then. Remarkable!!

We then proceeded to the town of Nauplion then to Mycenae to visit the Archaelogical site and the Tomb of Agamamnon. The tomb was in the shape of a dome and walking inside the tomb it all seemed very well preserved with original colours still shown. The tomb was quite cool inside compared to the scorching heat outside.

A breif stop in the beautiful town of Kalamata to sample some dried figs and the ever so popular black Kalamata olives (the birth place actually). I unfortunatelly couldn´t sample the olives but the figs were to die for. Also managed to find Thiples (pastry dessert) which also comes from that region and rare for me to see them selling in a shop. Mmmmm....

Off we headed again....
