Mycenae Reviews & Ratings
Great experience, it is really worth to come and climb on the hill through the ancient ruins to admire beautiful views. At the places like this, it was easier for me to imagine how life of Greeks was looking thousands years ago than for example in Athens. Recommend to come early in the morning, especially at summer, when there’s no crowds.
Really interesting ancient city. Fantastic honest descriptions, leaving you with a real sense of curiosity as to what caused the bronze age collapse. Make sure you check out the underground path to the well (near the back of the site).
Amazing archaeological site that our whole family enjoyed visiting and learning more about the awe inspiring Greek ancient history and the Mycenian civilization. The highlight was Lion's Gate, and if you visit the museum close by you understand a bit more with all the detailed exhibitions. It gets really hot in the summer so make sure you hydrate well and use sunscreen and hats.
Wonderful place! Don't miss the tombs and the most impressive tomb of Atreas which isn't in the archaeological site of Mycenae but very close!! Avoid going early in the afternoon! Prefer early in the morning or late in the afternoon! Check the opening hours!
Hot. Go there in the morning or not the summer! But it was absolutely incredible! The tombs were just amazing!
