Day 2 of the Hercules Bike tour in the Peloponnese of Greece. This day saw me cycling from Corinth to Nafplion, with a stop at the archaeological site of Mycenae along the way.
Mycenae is a remarkable hill fort, and was once the centre of a powerful empire which traded all around the Mediterranean. Although not directly linked with the Hercules 12 Labours myth, he did serve the King of the Kingdom of Mycenae, although his city was in Tyrins.
Note – I mentioned the Treasury of Artemis. I was wrong, it should be –
Treasury of Atreus
After visiting the site, I continued cycling on to Nafplion on the coast. About a 70kms day’s cycle ride in the end.
