I love these sites that you can walk through. I would advise comfortable, sturdy walking type shoes/sneakers. You have great access to the ruins. And the views are incredible.

Beautiful 360 degree views; worth a visit! The higher you climb, the more breathtaking the view. The museum is not very big. The ruins/archaelogical sites are spread out

The Archaeological Site Mycenae has everything for the student of ancient Greek history ... Lions Gate, tomb of Agamemnon, tombs, hills, ruins, olive trees, and the remnants of a past major centre of Greek civilization. Less crowded then many other sites, and easy to navigate.

Considered the Acropolis of Mycenae, the archaeological site at Mycenae houses some impressive ancient landmarks including excavated tombs and the famous Lion Gate, all of which are worth seeing. The site also offers unbeatable coastal views.
