For a 3,500 years old site that is mostly just rocks, Mycenae left a pretty big impression. There are just a few walls standing, but plenty of information to fill in the gaps of imagination. It is a veritable “playground” for kids who like to...More

Whether the heroes of legend were here or not is still a mystery. It is hard, though, not to imagine Agamemnon being part of this huge and impressive city.

This old ancient site shows how culture was already develloped in their time. Not only the site, but also the neighbourhood are beautiful.

Had great anticipation and Lion's Gate did not disappoint. However, many tour groups and only explanations were on information boards scattered amongst ruins. BRING a Flashlight (I was told by the ticket agent incorrectly that one was not needed). There is a spot where you...More
