This may or may not be the tomb of Agamemnon, and even though there isn't much left inside, there is a certain air of grandeur of being in the treasury and knowing how much coin was put in here once. We were also extremely lucky...More

Even though there is nothing inside to see, the entrance to the site is amazing. Walking to the door feels like entering a temple to start and adventure.

We visited the ancient burial site in Mycenae. It is a large "tholos" tomb on the Panagitsa Hill at Mycenae, constructed during the Bronze Age around 1250 BC. The structure was built with big stones. Tiers of ashlar masonry were laid in rings so that...More

Don't just head for the museum and main site and miss this amazing edifice. It may, or may not, be the tomb of Agamemnon (probably not), but it is well worth a visit and its construction fascination.

These beehive structures are truly amazing. They were built to last and they've certainly done that. Thousands of years old and still standing like it was built yesterday. The Citadel is incredible to stand in. You can't tell how huge it is until you're actually...More

Don't miss the Treasury of Atreus aka the Tomb of Agamemnon across the street from the entrance of Ancient Mycenae. This site is included with the admission to Ancient Mycenae, but it is really easy to miss if you are not specifically looking for it....More
