We arrived at approximately 10.30 and already the site was busy with four buses and the car park almost full, so be prepared! Nevertheless we were able to walk around the site and, in places, avoid the large groups and be alone. The site itself...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 was another amazing site if you are interested in Greece’s ancient history.. the beehive grave site was really interesting. It definitely looked taller inside than from the outside/. The Lions Gate was a feat to build.

There are better ruins in Greece. If it happens to pass by it’s ok to pay it a visit but not worth to make a wide detour. The place is packed, cant even find parking, there is quite a hike to get to see something...More
