"Ancient Mycenae" Top 5 Page for this destination Mycenae by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Mycenae Travel Guide: 69 reviews and 303 photos

As one of the foundational sites of European civilization, Mycenae is a popular tourist destination less than two hours' drive from Athens.
The site has been well-preserved, and the massive ruins of the cyclopean walls and the palaces on the acropolis still arouse the admiration of visitors, particularly when it is remembered that they were built a thousand years before the monuments of Classical Greece.

    I rode a bus to Mycenae 3 years ago and because of traveller's dementia, I have forgotten about the places I visited until I saw your tips here! I now remember the Treasury of Attrius and the plain of Argos! Thank you, thank you for making me remember!

    Mycenae sounds to be an interesting place to visit and one day I hope to be able to walk through the Lion Gate.

    Fine photos on your tips and travelogues as always! This page brings back memories of my own visit to Mycenae many years ago. Also I am very well acquainted with Agamemnon, Clytemnestra, Iphigenia, Aegistheus and Orestes as characters in operas!
