Ancient Mycenae, Mycenae
(4.4/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Take a trip back to the Bronze Age at Ancient Mycenae, one of the world's most significant archaeological sites. Featured on the World Heritage List, the site was once a major military stronghold. The ruins stand on a rugged hill 90 km (55 mi) southwest of Athens. At its peak in the 14th century BCE, the fortress and the surrounding town housed a population of more than 30,000. To see the remains of the palace complex and the famous beehive tombs, purchase a ticket at the main entrance, known as the Lion Gate. The path to the main gate is steep, so wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of water. Arrange to visit Ancient Mycenae and other attractions in Mycenae using our Mycenae family vacation planner.

  • Visited on a sunny day in mid-November. The site is about a 20 minute drive out of Nafplion and easy to find. Easily - and commonly - combined with Epidauros. Impressive indeed and offering grand view...  more »

  • Simple; but very central. Local clientele, in a city with very little tourism. Amabilíssim service. Economic prices.
