We were biking back to our hotel. Barbara, my wife, noticed and put on the brakes. Let's go in and be transported back in time.

If you happen to be visiting the site of Ancient Mycenae, it is well worth making the trip 500 metres down the road to this site. The entrance fee is included in the ticket that you buy to enter the main Mycenaean site. We were impressed by the splendid stone-walled entrance path and once inside the structure under the side...

There is only the single site to see here. Although it is rumored to possibly have been the Tomb of Agamemnon, it has not been established it was. What is interesting is that it has remained intact after all these thousands of years, unlike 99% of the rest of the ancient sites. The manner of construction resembles that of the... More

Its included in the ancient mycenae fee. Its very impressive and it always made me wonder how they did it. It is very well preserved and a quick and easy visit.

It is easy to miss but worth the stop. A nice part of the site and included in your admission. It is impressive to see the site with its historical significance.

To stand in the place where Kings once stood. to witness the structure that is still very intact..the magnificent tholos, or beehive tomb that stands here today, is remarkable..it is a very powerful experience.. The whole of Mycennae is a trip worth taking if you plan to visit Greece. It is quite helpful to have some basis of knowledge of... More

This tomb is very large and impressive. The fact that it was built so long ago and still standing is awe inspiring. Unfortunately that's about it for the site. You walk in and see the grand size and structure and there really is not much else there, except for the smell of animals.

The outside is interesting but it is not until you get inside that you are amazed at the building work and scale. A very short trip but worthwhile as you can enter here with your ticket to the Mycean site. And if you know the history /mythology of this place, it becomes even more interesting,

If you are the type who enjoys archaeologies, this place, together withthe rest of the Mycene area, id a place of "power" and you will feel it directly once there.
