Experience a private taxi excursion in Ancient Nemea from Corinth. This 5-hour self-guided excursion will take you to visit the Ancient Nemea archaeological site and museum, the ancient stadium. Visit an hospitable winery in Nemea and enjoy a wine tasting tour. This tour is serviced by professional, insured, non-smoking drivers with all appropriate licensing. All the vehicles used are in perfect condition and of course clean and tidy. They offer all the modern comforts such as air-conditioning, WiFi, digital TV, and DVD.
Be picked up in the morning from your hotel, the train station, or bus station in Corinth. The first stop will be ancient Nemea where you will see the ancient town's archaeological site and the museum, located inside the site. Nemea was famous in Greek myth as the home of the Nemean Lion, which was killed by the hero Heracles. Here you will have an hour to explore the Zeus temple, the great open-air altar, the baths, and the exhibits of the museum.
Afterward, head to the recently discovered stadium. The ancient stadium is notable for its well-preserved vaulted entrance tunnel, with ancient graffiti on the walls. Here you will also have an hour to explore the stadium and tunnel.
The last stop of the tour is a small, but hospitable winery, built around a family-owned vineyard. The best way to get accustomed with the process of producing the famous wines of Nemea is to take a trip through the vineyard, and see where everything begins and continues to the aging cellar of the estate, where the 300 French and American oak barrels are located. The 1-hour tour includes a wine tasting, and is guided by the owners at no extra charge. You will be taken back to your accommodations after.
Please note: drivers are not tour guides, they cannot tour the archaeological sites and museums. Tour guides are not available at the archaeological site.
