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,

The treasury was way cooler than the fortified ruins in my opinion, but in temperature and interestingness. I'm still wondering how they got that giant rock over the door in place. I'd put this in the top 5 things we saw on our trip

Stunning ancient tholos tomb a short distance from the ancient citadel of Mycenae. Amazingly well preserved structure, and a cool place to escape the heat of summer. It is a must-see, and the entrance fee is included in the ticket price for the main site. Like all of the archaeological sites in Greece, under 18s go free.

Large complex with a number of artifacts But! you need comfortable shoes to the ground. Be careful with small children, a number of stones.... On a quiet tour of need enough time (more than 1, 2, 3 hours). You will not regret it, there is much to see

This is the Treasury of Atreus also called the tomb of Agamemnon a gem in Mykene on Peloponnese, Greece. The domed ceiling and huge chamber inside was really something - my son said to me: mum I feel like I'm in an Indiana Jones movie. Entrance fee is €8 together with another Mykene sight.

This is actually a tholos (beehive-shaped tomb). The entry walk is very impressive. The ceiling is amazingly well-preserved. After spending time inside, it is worth climbing up the hill so that you, in effect, are standing on the outside top of the ceiling. Quite extraordinary. Don't miss.
