Just a couple of minutes down the road from the main site, is the Treasury of Atreus, beehive tomb or also known as the Tomb of Agamemnon. The price is included with that of the main site and the treasury is worth seeing. It only...More

My wife and I were here on a Globus tour. For me, the biggest attraction to the Mycenae Citadel is the Lion Gate, as you climb up between the thick walls. It’s a relief of two lions. The Lion Gate - is Europe’s oldest known...More

We visited this site after the mycanae archaeological visit (price is included). Drove down from the main site prior to heading back to town. What an awesome site! So massive and quiet when inside. We were lucky to miss the tourists so we were alone...More

There is not much to see in the empty tomb that some claim to be the one of Agamemnon. However, you certainly get a feeling of the ancient history there.

It's a gigantic construction to have been built 3000 years ago, no wonder the Cyclops were credited with its construction, as well as the near by city. The roof and it's survival is testament to the skills and design of these people. It's included in...More

Before you visit and say it’s empty it or it stinks like some people who rated it terrible , think that it was built over 3000 years ago and remains largely intact. For 30 minutes make sure you stop and see it and wonder with...More
