This awe-inspiring monument looks as though it was built by giants. Get a glimpse of the shady gallery - you used to be able to walk down here, but is now considered unsafe.

Came here on route to Nafplio on our way to Mycenae, and was surprised at the scale of the ruin as well as the pristine view of the sea in the background-some stunning photo opportunities! However, there was very little signage and information regarding the...More

Why don’t more people go here? It is absolutely jaw dropping. How were those huge stones moved, laid and constructed? On a small knoll in the plain (now 1.5km back from the sea as its silted up the plain below) stands this wonderful site. Read...More

I agree with previous reviews as to the impressive yet could be so much more ruins. Basically an ancient polis with not much info given on the entry brochure. It took us about an hour to wander around and try to imagine what the remains...More

Due to this site not being as well known as others nearby, we pretty much had it to ourselves. Read up in advance as there is limited information and no guided tours. €4 entry each. Small information leaflet provided. Spent a couple of hours wandering...More

Tiryns is worth a walk around the walls to marvel at how did they do this in the long ago Mycenaean age. Inside it is very basic foundations with a few interesting peaked openings.

Seriously? One of the most important sites in Greece and this is what they’ve done with it? Here you literally walk in the footsteps of Heracles (Hercules) along the same path where he dragged Cerberus from the Underworld. Here you can wander through the chief...More

The bronze age site is definitely worth a visit if you are in the Nauplio area. It is a smaller site than Mycenae and is still undergoing conservation. Recently a stairway has opened and this gives one a sense of the immense scale of the...More

Tyrens is not worth a special trip. The main interest here is a large wall with large stones. That is it. Little signage or explinations of the significance are provided on the grounds. I feel that it wasn't even worth going inside the walls, which...More

We visited in the afternoon after Mycenae in the morning. We were the only tourists. We much preferred Mycenae, as there was not much to see here besides the thick walls. I would not make it a priority.
