We visited Mycenae as a daytrip from Nafplio. The drive itself was easy and parking was plentiful. Unlike other archeological sites, Mycenae has not undergone much restoration, except for the Lion's Gate, and you need a lot of imagination to make the site come to...More

If you are into History, Archaeology or art, this is a place you shouldn't miss, as it's an unforgettable experience to visit the whole site and get lost in a place with 3500 years of antiquity!!! The lion's gate and the huge stones and walls...More

There are several Archaeological sites in Greece. So I simply compare ticket price and that what I see... For the same price of 12€ I liked other one - the Archaeological site of Mystras....

The ancient ruins of Mycenae are with a visit. The site stretches out pretty far but it’s relatively easy to walk. The Lion’s gate, museum and burial site are especially interesting

It is amazing considering the site dates back to 13th century BC. The lions gate entrance is fantastic, as it is the burial circle. It is easy to access the site with parking nearby. Well worth a visit.

There is plenty of interest in the ancient site of Mycenae. My experience of it was less enjoyable than it otherwise might have been due to hundreds of French school children running everywhere and climbing all over the ancient monuments. Careful planning is required for...More

Mikene is very close to Navplion, archeological sight is on the hill, slowly going around you need about one hour. Great view to the valey. The museum is realy very nice with the fascinating golden mask (copy) of Agamemnon.
