Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / Peloponnese / Argolis Region / Mycenae / Archaeological Site Mycenae
Take a trip back to the Bronze Age at Archaeological Site 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. Archaeological Site Mycenae is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Mycenae Edition.

Archaeological Site Mycenae Reviews
Had a very pleasant few hours walking around this archaeological site. It ìs in lovely countryside and had views all around. Worth visiting. more »
La Porta dei Leoni, ovviamente è stupenda, ma continuare il percorso per tutto il sito ti fa capire ancora di più la grandezza. Buona visita more »The door of the Lions, of course is beautiful, but continue the path for the whole site makes you understand even more greatness. Good visit
