Ancient Nemea: A Wine & Ruins Outing
Join us on an excursion to the wondrous valley of Nemea, where ancient Greeks held games in honor of Zeus, and modern Greeks have turned it into a renowned wine region. Located only an hour and a half from Athens, your private driver will take you first to explore the ancient ruins of the temple and stadium. Next, you will relax at a well-known vineyard estate for an in-depth tour, wine tasting seminar, olive oil tasting, and finally a tasting of five internationally awarded premium wines paired with a cheese and meat platter.
