The area around Agroktima Elia is steeped in history of Ancient times in Greece. Ancient Tiryntha where we are situated dates back to the Mycenaean Era and Mycenae is just 20 mins away. There are many other significant archaeological sites in the Argolida and places of interest which are detailed on our Places to Visit page and also more generally in the Peloponnese.
Agroktima Elia is very close to Nafplion, the first capital of Greece where visitors flock to all the year round to take in the magical atmosphere of the place. Narrow streets with overhanging balconies and small shops, tavernas and bars spilling out onto the sidewalk.
The beaches of Karathona and Arvanitia are just 8-10 minutes from Agroktima Elia in Nafplion and Tolo beach is just 15 minutes away. There are many other beaches following the coast in any direction.
The city of Argos is known to be the oldest continually inhabited city in Europe and well worth a day to visit the archaeological museum, ancient theatre, castle of Larissa and the local market on a Wednesday and Saturday held in the market place.
Ancient Asini, written about by Homer in his books the Iliad and the Odyssey was the main port of Mycenae during the era of the same name, a beautiful place with wonderful views
