Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / Peloponnese / Argolis Region / Mycenae / Archaeological Site Mycenae
Take a trip back to the Bronze Age at Archaeological Site Mycenae, one of the world's most significant archaeological sites. Featured on the World Heritage List, the site was once a major military stronghold. The ruins stand on a rugged hill 90 km (55 mi) southwest of Athens. At its peak in the 14th century BCE, the fortress and the surrounding town housed a population of more than 30,000. To see the remains of the palace complex and the famous beehive tombs, purchase a ticket at the main entrance, known as the Lion Gate. The path to the main gate is steep, so wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of water. Archaeological Site Mycenae is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.
