The tomb is a short walk down from the main site car park. It is doubtful that it is the tomb of either Atreus or Agamemnon but it is certainly impressive. You can certainly believe that the walled walkway to the tomb entrance was the...More

This place is enormous and was fortified over 3000 years ago. It is about a mile before the main Mycenae city.

Agamemnon's Tomb or the Treasury of Atreus is an impressive construction and provided an extra dimension in April when we visited because the entrance was swarming with bees that one carefully ignored as one entered the beehive tomb.

The tomb of Agamemnon, as the Treasury of Atreus is also known as, is located a short distance from the rest of the main Mycenae site (and certainly within comfortable walking distance if required). I drove there as it was on the way out and...More

Included in the ticket for the ruins of Mycenae. A short walk down the road from the citadel. Amazing site to visit. The age of the site is very impressive. One of the most impressive ancient buildings in Greece. The brick work inside is beautiful....More

This Treasury of Atreus is separate of archeological sites (before them) and is a special one, because of special architecture.

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.

The Treasury of Atreus - or Tomb of Agamemnon - is the best preserved tholos tomb. Built about 2000 years after Stonehenge, in its day it was a fantastic feat of engineering. The lintel stone above the doorway weighs 120 tons, with approximate dimensions 8.3...More
