What you can expect?

Begin your day by hopping on the modern vehicle that will take you to Nemea. Upon arrival, explore the ancient site of Nemea on a guided tour where your local, expert guide will show you the Temple of Nemean Zeus, the pride of the ancient Macedonian’s building program. Discover why Nemean Zeus was not of the same character as the fulminating Olympian Zeus and see the impressive Ancient Stadium that was built in 330 B.C and still holds games to this day!

From the mythological feats of bravery, we take you to discover another talent the ancients had, apart from story-telling: winemaking! At a local winery, taste 3-5 of their best wines, from deep reds to refreshing whites and summertime rosés, while you learn about modern Greek wine and try a variety of cheeses from across Greece.

We continue to your second winery, where we give you an introduction to the deep, ruby red variety of Agiorgitiko, a captivating wine with aromatic complexity and a smooth finish. You will discover for yourself the excellence of this variety, as you will taste 3 to 5 of its different wines, accompanied by cheeses, specially selected to complement the labels.

Enhance your whimsical adventure with a visit to the impressive Wisdom of Nature, where you'll be introduced to organic grape farming and the production of balsamic vinegar by locals that have devoted their lives to the Nemean land.

End your Greek wine endeavors and the exploration of the region of Nemea in the best way possible: a Greek feast accompanied by an impeccable view over the Nemean valley. There, you will have the opportunity to sit down to a delicious 5-course dinner of traditional dishes made with fresh, local products.  As the sun sets, enjoy your evening with good food, good company and of course, the finest wines of the Nemea region, before hitting the road and returning to Athens in comfort and luxury!

Archaeological sites and Myths:

The temple of Nemean Zeus

At the site of ancient Nemea stand the ruins of the temple of Zeus, the very centre of the cult of the king of the Gods, in the Panhellenic site of Nemea. The visible ruins date back to the Macedonian time-period (330 BC), although the base of the original archaic temple is still visible. During the 2nd century, the famous traveller Pausanias, visited the temple and mentioned that it is surrounded by cypresses. Today, the restoration programme of the archaeological site re-erected some of the fallen columns of the temple. The centre of the Nemean Games, held every two years, the temple of Zeus, is a site not to be missed during your trip to Nemea.

Reviews

  • We booked the Nemea myth and wine tour as a day trip from Athens. Our driver, Petros was excellent but the highlight was the tour by Vivi, our archaeologist guide and then the wineries. We visited 2 selected wineries, one a modern style big winery and the other a family run boutique winery. Both with excellent introductions and high quality wines. We tasted 8 wines from indigenous grape varieties and then we had an outstanding dinner together with the wines from the tasting. It was a perfect day with super friendly people and we can recommend it to everyone.

  • I recently did the Lion of Nemea archeological tour, wine tasting, and lunch with Greekingme. It was my husband and I with my sister and her boyfriend. We had such an amazing time on the tour. Everything was perfect - wine, food, tour of ancient Nemea. Dominik was an incredibly knowledgeable and fun guide and we really enjoyed our time. He was also great at keeping us on track without rushing anything. We would so recommend this tour to others - not just an amazing intro to Nemea and Greece, but also some of the best wine tours I've been on. We have been on many and we still learned a LOT! The lunch was also incredible. If you are visiting Greece and like wine, do not miss this tour - you will not be disappointed!
