Blue Sky Studios in Argolida

some information about the Argolida county on the Peloponnese peninsula, southern Greece

Blue Sky Studios are in the Argolida county of the Peloponnese in Southern Greece. The county covers most of the eastern finger of the peninsula and the beauty of the Argolis landscape is renowned.. it is adorned by green fields, olive and citrus groves, forests, mountains, drifting down to the coastline with numerous glorious beaches and crystal clear sea, this combined with the rich variety of archaeological sites of the area makes the Argolid a must to visit. The major areas of population are: the capital of Argos (the oldest continually inhabited town in Europe), Nafplion (the first capital of Greece) and, of course, Tolo (a popular holiday resort to both Greek and foreign visitors).

From 1600 to 1100BC the Argolida was under the rule of the Mycenaean's and was the centre of Greece. A few sites that should not be missed such as  Mycenae or Mykines or Mikine, one of the most impressive ancient sites in the Argolid. Heinrich Schliemann excavated here in 1870 and among his finds was the famous 'Mask of King Agamemnon' made from gold, also know as the 'death mask'. Another site is Epidavros, set amongst a valley of pine trees, flowers, olive and orange groves, the theatre dating back to 3rd century BC and still operating in the high season, showing mainly Greek ancient dramas, comedy and tragedy and seating up to 14,000 spectators. Alongside the theatre is the sanctuary of Asclepios, the God of Medicine and it was to here that not only ancient Greeks but many people from afar came for medication and healing.

Nafplion is home to the famous Palamidi fortress with a climb of 999 steps to the top, and is classed as one of the prettiest towns in Greece and just a few kilometers to Tolo is the Ancient Site of Assini, treasures can be found all long the coastline as well as inland. The Argolida just waiting for you to explore it.

As an alternative, take cruise to one of the islands of Hydra, Spetses or Poros on daily cruises that leave the harbour of Tolo through the Summer months.
