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

This was getting towards the end of our tour of Greece and I'd seen lots of ruins. However, the beehive tomb just blew me away. I had such a feeling of awe and wonder as I approached the tomb and again as I was inside....More

It's downhill, about 1 km ride from the main site of Mycaenae. There's also a parking spot nearby, you'd need a separate ticket, but it's really worth it. The citadel is incredible. Not as a demanding site when it comes to walking as main site...More

This place is amazing. The way they built this is a wonder to behold. Be sure to have a guide with you for this though. The best tour guides were from Gate1 Travel. Our guide was Yannis, THE BEST and most knowledgeable.

Very interesting tomb and monument and also a welcome cool shade when we needed it! Unbelievable to think this was built before any heavy lifting mechanics were available! And difficult to see how the structure was possible the way the ceiling is graded- phenomenal!

We arrived early and thankfully missed the crowds. Walking up the rough path I was not expecting much, but once turning the corner you see the large entrance and doorway under >100 tonne of stone. Although the tomb was already plundered when discovered it is...More

What is known as Treasury of Atreus or Tomb of Agamemnon is worth the visit whilst at the citadel. Make sure you visit this site which is before the citadel and the same ticket can be used to enter the site.
