This is a tomb constructed around 1250 BC. It is physically impressive and a good photo opportunity. The wonder, as with some of the other structures in ancient Greece, is how it could have been constructed given the available tools.

I enjoyed the day trip to Mycenae from Athens a lot. The history and architectural achievements all the way back from the bronze age are impressive. Also the drive along the coast to get here is worth it.

A large tomb built in the side of a hill. The construction of the entrance is amazing but wait until you see the inside. It is amazing that all those years ago people could build these amazing structures.

It's downhill, about 1 km ride from the main site of Mycaenae. There's also a parking spot nearby, you'd need a separate ticket, but it's really worth it. The citadel is incredible. Not as a demanding site when it comes to walking as main site...More

Most people miss this. Because this is not inside the main complex. They see the main site and the museum and then be gone. This site is 10-15 minutes down the road. The structure is huge and was never buried by earth. So it was...More

The beehive citadel is beautiful. The entrance is so impressive with the entrance having the large slab of stone that holds up the citadel. This was the tomb for a royal member from the Mycenian civilization. The structure is so impressive when you realize it...More

This place is amazing. The way they built this is a wonder to behold. Be sure to have a guide with you for this though. The best tour guides were from Gate1 Travel. Our guide was Yannis, THE BEST and most knowledgeable.
