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.

Entrance to what is known as Treasury of Atreus or Tomb of Agamemnon has some parking spaces up front. It is just down the road from Ancient Mycenae and same ticket can be used to gain entrance. Rough entrance so forget wheelchairs or pushchairs here....More

Since our visit, I will forever be in amazement as to how this tomb was built over 3500 years ago. We were told the main stone weighs 120 tons, how did they move that with no machinery??? Take the obligatory photo, it's a pretty cool...More

Massive bee hive type tomb. Not a lot to see but pretty impressive and included in main Mycenae ticket so make sure yo call in after. Only takes few mins but consider how they managed to make these things millennia ago and worth seeing.
