Once I met up with the West Texas A&M University study abroad group, I adopted their travel schedule. One day, we took a bus tour to Mycenae and several other locations. We started the morning with pick up at a local hotel, and a couple of hours later we made our first rest stop in Corinth, where we got some coffee, some snacks, and a dizzying (for me) view of the Corinth Canal. It joins the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf.
We arrived next at the ruins of Mycenae, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It’s a gorgeous site representing a civilization, the Mycenaean, that had significant cultural, religious, and architectural influence on the entire Mediterranean region.
The Tomb of Agamemnon is a short distance away.
I took this one while we were riding back to Athens. It appears to be a fish farm.
