This site is still under excavation. The brochure we received when we paid our entrance fee was very helpful. However, we would have appreciated informational signage at the site.

Tiryns is simply unmissable if one is interested in ancient Greek archaeology!! The site is comprehensibly organized and easy to get to.

The restored walls are spectacular. I liked the way that several differnt strata of the excavation are left apparent, whch gives the sense of long use and reuse over centuries.

The site was closed for several years for repair work and access to the corbel vaulted galleries is stll shut off, but the fortification walls alone are worth a visit.
