The town was an important seaport held under a succession of royal houses in the Middle Ages as part of the lordship of Argos and Nauplia, held initially by the de la Roche following the Fourth Crusade before coming under the Republic of Venice and, lastly, the Ottoman Empire. The town was the capital of the First Hellenic Republic and of the Kingdom of Greece, from the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821 until 1834. Nafplio is the most picturesque town in mainland of Greece

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, Mycenae Greece

    The Treasury of Atreus or Tomb of Agamemnon is a large tholos constructed during the Bronze Age around 1250 BC. The lintel stone above the doorway weighs 120 tons, with approximate dimensions 8.3 x 5.2 x 1.2m the largest in the world. The tomb was used for an unknown period. Mentioned by Pausanias, it was still visible in 1879 when the German amateur archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann discovered the shaft graves under the 'agora' in the Acropolis at Mycenae. The tomb has probably no relationship with either Atreus or Agamemnon, as archaeologists believe that the sovereign buried there ruled at an earlier date than the two, but it was named thus by Heinrich Schliemann and the name has been used ever since.

    The grave is in the style of the other tholoi of Mycenaean Greece, of which there are nine in total around the citadel of Mycenae and many more in the Argolis. However, in its monumental shape and grandeur it is one of the most impressive monuments surviving from the Mycenaean period.
    Combined Ticket ( Tomb & Site): Winter 6€ /Summer 12€. Under 19 y. free / Over 65 y. reduced

    Duration: 15 minutes

    The Acropolis of Mycenae, with its strategic position for the control of the Argolid Plain, is the kingdom of the mythical Agamemnon and the most important and richest palatial center of the Late Bronze Age in Greece. Its name was given to one of the greatest civilizations of Greek prehistory, the Mycenaean civilization, while the myths related to its history, its rulers and their family members (such as Klytaimnestra, Ifigeneia, Elektra, Orestes) have inspired poets, writers and artists over many centuries, from the ancient to the contemporary times. Significant stages in monumental architecture are still visible in the property, such as the massive defensive walls, the cor-belled tholos tombs and the Lions Gate.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Archaeological Museum of Ancient Mycenae, Mycenae Greece
