Leave behind the noisy Athens via E94 to Korinthos and after passing it turn left to follow road signs for Epidavros. Nice windy road within patches of nice scenery and proceed to the ancient site of Epidavros. Most interesting site is the amphitheatre, a well preserved monument of the glorious Greek history. The whole place is a "museum", scattered around you can see leftovers of the ancient establishment. Continue towards Nafplio, a beautiful small town especially at the seafront cafes and tavernas with a great view of the Argolikos bay. Visit also the old part of the first capital of Greece after the revolution of 1821, very close to the seafront, and walk through the narrow streets especially during the evenings which the atmosphere is more intensive. Another great feature of the town is the castle/fort of Palamidi located on a hill, easy to see, which will give an even greater view of the bay. The tiny island of Bourzi lying very close to the seafront which used to be a prison is accessible by boat for the curious and explorers. This route is compatible with the one to Githio.

Notes: Gas stations and other facilities are available / cautious while riding in Greek country side / all season route.
