Argolis - International Day for Monuments and Sites, April 18th 2021
April 18th of each year is designated by the UNESCO and the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) as World Day of Monuments. The commemoration aims to raise public awareness on the important issue of the protection of Cultural Heritage. To this end, a series of events of all forms take place around the world, on the initiative of UNESCO and ICOMOS. These events aim not only for the general public to become aware of the importance of the monuments of each country and their problems, but also to promote the cause of their protection and integration in contemporary social, cultural and economic life. As part of these events, in Greece actions are initiated, such as: free admission to monuments, the list of goods of cultural heritage at risk brought to public, awareness of young people in the protection and conservation of monuments
So on Sunday, April 18th 2021, all of us are given a unique opportunity to visit and get to know better the archeological sites of our homeland with free admission! In addition, the qualified tourist Guides of Argolis give an extra motivation to all those who want not just visit the archeological sites of the prefecture, but also to deepen in their historical and cultural value, by organizing guided tours that day at a very low price, such as Mycenae, the Asclepieion of Epidaurus, Ancient Tiryns and the other archeological sites of Argolis.
The guided tours will be carried out with total compliance in the health protocols and a limited number of people in each group (4 people, up to 6 for a family), while a telephone reservation is necessary.
