  • Our tour starts in front of the ancient theater of Epidaurus with the direction to Ligourio.
    We cycle 5 km through olive fields in a dirt path and then 1km downhill to the main asphalt road.
    After 10 min we meet in our left side the preserved ancient path. It welcomes us an inscription of the 3rd century BC, that exact copy has been hacked at the entrance of the reconstructed area and says to us:
    ‘This pathway traveler will leads you to the sanctuary of the God of healing”
    We cycle through vegetation and pine trees and with the sound of stream and birds to accompany us.
    In a few minutes we approach the river bed which in winter, autumn and spring time we will find water.

    Continue on, the path goes uphill and we will see within the path the two ancient Herms and the preserved imprints of chariot lanes (armatrochies).
    At the end of this preserved path will find a small picturesque chapel where ‘Pausanias has a story to tell us’.
    We will cycle totally 1.800 m at the today’s survival ancient path which connected the sanctuary of ancient Epidaurus with the port of Epidaurus and also it was the only one ancient Mycenaean path which connected the argolic towns with the ancient port of Kechries of Saronic gulf.

    Continue on, we cycle 6 km to provincial road with small ascent through olive fields.
    During to those 6 km we see mysterious ruins, and a byzantine church. When we reach the Ligourio village, we can visit the ruins of one pyramid with panoramic view of the surrounding area. Our tour ends at the local olive oil company with olive oil tasting and mini buffet or in a traditional tavern with lunch.
