This cistern was pitch-black at the bottom and made a creepy post-Halloween walk for us.
Day 2 included a visit to Epidaurus, the ancient healing site.
We also had the pleasure of visiting Franchthi Cave (with a stop for a picnic lunch) with our professor, Steve Diamant, who excavated here in the 1960s and 70s!
We stayed in beautiful Nafplio for two nights.
The orange groves surrounding Lerna are almost ready to harvest–we may or may not have taken a few for a snack on the bus.
Tiryns impressed us, even in the rain.
Back down 1000ish steps for lunch in Nafplio
Our last stop was Olympia, home of the ancient Olympic games
