Ancient Mycenae

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $99 USD / Adult
Find yourself transported through the millennia amid the ruins of Mycenae, a UNESCO World Heritage site dating to the Bronze Age. The city was first excavated in 1876 by German archeologist, Heinrich Schliemann, who was obsessed with finding the grave of mythology’s King Agamemnon. Many experts believed he succeeded, as the famed Beehive Tomb you’ll enter in Mycenae is reputed to be the final resting place of the mighty Agamemnon. However, this is just one of many epic finds revealed on this archeological expedition. Stroll along ancient walls that in some place are a mind-boggling eight feet deep and said to have been erected by the Cyclops. Enter the Lion’s Gate and walk beneath the watchful eyes of two sculpted beasts to reach the Acropolis. Learn about the city’s history and the artifacts unearthed here, including the Mask of Agamemnon, as you travel back to the days of ancient Greece. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
