Mycenae, Mycenae

See the Peloponnese Guide ›
Tel: 27510 76585's insider take:

Now a maze of paths and crumbling walls, this ancient citadel was once (1,400–1,100 B.C.) the center of an empire that embraced the Plain of Argos and much of mainland Greece and Crete. It was also home to that unlucky family, the House of Atreus, one of whom, Agamemnon, killed his mother, Clytemnestra, as she bathed. (You can see her tub in the palace.) As you head down from Mycenae, stop at the Treasury of Atreus, a cavernous beehive tomb from 1,300 B.C. Open daily. May–Oct: 8–7, Nov–Apr: 8–5; 3 Euros.
