Argos

Considered one of the oldest cities of Greece, the town of Argos lies about 40 kilometers from Epidaurus and 12 kilometers from Nafplio, and offers a plethora of ancient attractions.

When you stroll the streets of the modern city you can see many places of archaeological interest including the ancient theater and agora, as well as the imposing citadel of Larissa—the history of which begins in prehistoric times and reaches the Greek Revolution of 1821—which towers over the modern city of Argos.
