Mycenae is an ancient city located in the north of the Peloponnese, on the plain of Argolis. A three to four hour drive (dependant on traffic) from our base in Vravona on the east side of Athens. Mycenaean's were described by Homer in the Iliad and the Odyssey. There are two things to see at the site, lots of old stones and tourists. Mycenae and the Mycenaean culture was at its peak round about 1400 BC and had declined by about 1200 BC
09.09.2000. For me the most impressive structure was the tomb and/or treasury of Agamemnon, which is located on the other side of the road from the Mycenae site (free entrance if you keep your ticket from Mycenae). I have plans of building a similar tomb for myself in the back yard when I get home, unfortunately at this point the only gold I have to bury there is my wedding ring!
