Once again, worth the visit if you are in the area. The history on this place is amazing, my kids loved imagining how the built it. The only minus about this site is the cat smell in the chamber, easy to understand with all the cats roaming the streets.

We stopped because it was close to the main attraction gate and we were already there. You need 5 minutes maximum but it isn't a WOW by any means. if there isn't any parking just keep going and know you didn't miss too much!

How did they build this with such massive pieces of rock. Legend says it was the Cyclops who helped, however they did it was a fantastic piece of engineering. No treasure was ever found so the actual tomb belonged to ? back in 1250BC.

Nearby to the archaeological site of Mycenae, this tomb, known as the Treasury of Atreus is an excellent first stop on your visit to this area. Is clearly shows how the beehive tombs were constructed. About 3500 years old, the tomb was robbed of its wealth in ancient times and not much more is known.

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.
