Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Considering the age of the site, it is marvelous. The size and weight of the stone used to chisel the lions is impressive.

Amazing Gate with unique sculpted stones. The size is larger than you would expect. This archway is the entry to the Archaeological site.

This is the crowning glory of this historic site. It is amazing that it remains largely intact after 3,400 years!

So much history and story was awe inspiring to stand and see it for real at the entrance to the historic city of Mycenae.

Very interesting piece of archaeology, made of huge slabs of stone, found at the entrance of the ancient city of Mycenae (Mykines).

Entrance to the temple, a gate with two lions guarding it. It must have been magnificent when it was first completed.

The first thing you see when entering the path up to the archaeological site. Go early if you want photos without anyone else in them!
