Lost 8 euros (2 adults) and 1 hour of my precious traveling time. There is nothing inside. No signs, no places to visit. It is more beautiful from outside. Avoid!!!

Nafplio is a stop for most people who visit Mycenae, so if you're a fan of Homer, this is worth a stop. It isn't as extensive as Mycenae but it's worth checking out to check it off your list.

Small Bronze Age site in an orange grove on the road between Nafplion and Argos. A visit will take less than an hour. Impressive cyclopean walls and other structures.

Occupying a significant position during the Mycenaean era, Tiryns is part of the UNESCO WHS ‘Archaeological sites of Mycenae and Tiryns’. Unfortunately, it has lost much of its former glory, and nowadays lies rather abandoned on the roadside between Argos and Nafplio. Only six kilometres...More

This was an important site back in the day. But there was no signage explaining what you were seeing, or the importance of it. We enjoyed the site due to our reading and guide book. But it would have been nice to have an explanation...More

The ground plan is easier to work out than Mycenae itself, but you need a good guidebook, so that you find the megaron (pillar bases only are visible) & the bathroom - with sloping floor to drain the water. The thick walls are impressive. Be...More
