Full description
Venture south of Athens with your trusty guide to discover the magnificent Peloponnese. Leaving mainland Greece, this tour will explore Mycenae, one of the ancient world’s most noteworthy cultures. The region that was destined to give birth to one of antiquity’s most important civilizations, the Mycenaean. The “cyclopean walls” of the citadel of Mycenae, impressively intact to this day, highlight the heyday of a civilization brought to light by Heinrich Schliemann. A civilization that served as inspiration to the great ancient tragedians that subsequently helped shape western thought.

Witness The Lion Gate, a remarkable example of Mycenaean sculpture, grave circle A with its shaft tombs and golden funerary finds, the palace atop the citadel with its throne room, the underground water cistern with its ornate stairs and the beehive tombs (“tholos”) all give proof of the grandeur of an era that has left indelible marks throughout the ages.
