The bronze age site is definitely worth a visit if you are in the Nauplio area. It is a smaller site than Mycenae and is still undergoing conservation. Recently a stairway has opened and this gives one a sense of the immense scale of the...More

Tyrens is not worth a special trip. The main interest here is a large wall with large stones. That is it. Little signage or explinations of the significance are provided on the grounds. I feel that it wasn't even worth going inside the walls, which...More

We visited in the afternoon after Mycenae in the morning. We were the only tourists. We much preferred Mycenae, as there was not much to see here besides the thick walls. I would not make it a priority.

Although this site is not as spectacular as Mycenae or Nemea, it is still well worth the visit while in the area.

You can see this site from the road, but it is well worth the admission to get in. There are many photo opportunities here, including the tall Cyclopean walls and winding staircases. The site is pretty quaint and takes under an hour to see. It...More

The citadel is impressive and the restoration is well explained. Yet the solo visit is not provided with more explanation in situ. Walking and seeing through the large walls is pleasant

Impressive structures, huge walls surrounding the site of the Mycenaean fortress. Easily accessible from the main road near Nafplion. Allow plenty of time to tour the area and wear comfortable shoes.

Not quite as imposing or impressive as Mycenae, this is nevertheless an interesting site to visit. Beware of the 3pm closing time in winter - makes it quite challenging to combine with other ancient sites in the same day if you want to see the...More

Tiryns is an amazing place to visit, and the thickness of the walls and the completeness of the site are two reasons to do so. However, it would really benefit from better on site explanations, such as you have at Mycenae, and from some tidying...More

Situated 4km from Nafplio is the impressive acropolis of Tiryns, an important Mycenaean architectural achievement.
