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.

  • I will start by saying that I really need a long time to see everything and enjoy! Wants time because is like a part large enough and interesting enough. take your shoes for hiking because it has walking. If you want to see and the funerary monuments it is advisable to have your boots. Camera is essential because the views are MAGNIFICENT! Has in too many places explanatory signs in Greek and English and will not struggle! If you decide to visit the place it would be good to have read a little history of before. A big thumbs up in the Museum area that offers auto tour. Carry with you a walking AIDS (cane) If you are a little older because it has a smooth way but uphill (after talking about ancient Acropolis). Ideal for children. And from up there ... To watch the sunset in front of you having all the plain ... cuddling with your partner ... What more beautiful and more magical?

  • A site charming and very impressive to say the least, a pity that though the Greek economic situation cannot afford to cultural heritage to be valued as they should ... most panels are missing ... such a shame. Anyway, must see!

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