Athens to Mycenae and back by bus.

Can anyone tell me what the exact bus is to get to Mycenae and where it is located. I don't want tour info, I want to take a bus. Thanks!

It may be a very difficult bus trip. There is a bus to Nafplio then there are buses to Mycenae but it may be more than you want to deal with for a day trip. I would suggest taking the bus from Athens to Nafplio and basing yourself there for day trips to Mycenae, Epidavrous and surrounding sites. Nafplio is a wonderful town and probably one of the nicest in all of Greece with a lovely Old Town to stay in. There is a bus station just outside the Old Town with trips to various sites in the surrounding area. It's all very easy for a do-it-your-selfer and at a very low price for the bus.

While I agree with the above information and suggestions ; the bus from Athens (Kiffisou bus terminal) to Nafplio, about every hour, passes through Fichti , which would be the drop off point for Mycenae. I think the ancient site is two kilometers away. So a taxi ?

This link provides the bus schedule for the area:


Of what I remember there is a walk as suggested above but both times I visited the site passing drivers stopped to give me a lift.
