Wander the enchanting, exquisitely well-preserved archaeological site and 4th-century theater of Epidaurus, the ancient shrine of Asclepius, god of medicine. Continue to Mycenae, Agamemnon's capital. On the lesser-visited peninsula of Peloponnese, stroll the narrow streets of Monemvasia, "Greece's Gibraltar."
