We managed to arrive during a lull in the stream of visitors so we had the place all to ourselves for quite awhile. You get a true sense of the massive scale standing in the giant doorway under the 120 ton lintel stone. The tomb...More

This is a must visit if you want to know about not only the history of the region, but the world's. This civilization had coins and alphabet way before the Hellenic civilization ... the artifacts show a culturally advanced society. Tip: ensure to have a...More

We saw King Agamemnon's death mask in the National Archeological Museum in Athens a few years ago and, since then, I have wanted to visit his tomb. Sad to say, although this may have been Agamemnon's tomb (as claimed by Schliemann) we are not sure....More

Massive bee hive type tomb. Not a lot to see but pretty impressive and included in main Mycenae ticket so make sure yo call in after. Only takes few mins but consider how they managed to make these things millennia ago and worth seeing.

It is completely empty. Waste of time. 2 dark parts under hill. 1 closed. No single lamp or info there. Save time and spend it more for impressive Mykenes fortress.

Part of the ancient Mycenae site, just a little down the road from the main site, but included in your overall ticket. Don't miss it! It is a huge domed top tomb and was pretty cool. Very quick on your way out.

You can visit this after the ruins and museum at Mycenae. Very short walk from parking area there. Not much to see but the entrance ticket is included in the one for Mycenae.

Typical Mycenaean royal tomb. It is not far from the main entrance. Once inside you can see how big it is, huge! There was nothing inside on our visit, and it has been like this since its discovery. This Tholos (behive) tomb most probably contained...More
