A history buff's dream, the Argolis region served as the Mycenaean seat of power for over a thousand years. Traces of this period remain scattered all across Argolis, which stretches across the eastern section of the Peloponnese peninsula. The town contains a fine museum of archaeology and the ruins of a 4th-century theater. The regional capital Nafplio, a vibrant seaport known for its atmospheric old town, offers a comfortable base for tours of the nearby villages, Venetian fortifications, and Byzantine churches. The region takes its name from the ancient town of Argos, one of the longest continually inhabited settlements in Europe.
