Getting There

By Car: From Athens, take the National Road to Corinth and then follow signs for Argos and Tripolis. The road divides just after the sign for Ancient Corinth. The speedy new Corinth-Tripolis toll road has green signposts depicting a highway. Take the Nemea turnoff and follow signs to the site. If you take the old Corinth-Argos road, the turnoff for Nemea is signposted. Allow 30 minutes from Corinth to Nemea on the new road and an hour on the old road.

By Bus: About five buses a day travel here, usually via Corinth, from the Stathmos Leoforia Peloponnisou station in Athens, 100 Kifissou (tel. 210/512-4910). Allow about 3 hours for the trip. Ask to be let off at the ancient site of Nemea (Ta Archaia), on the outskirts of the hamlet of Archaia Nemea, not in the village of Nea Nemea. For schedules, check www.ktelargolida.gr; one-way fare is about 12€.
