DESCRIPTION

On this Mycenae private tour, you will step into the legendary world of ancient Mycenae, a site deeply intertwined with the heroic deeds of Hercules. This is the very place where Hercules began his legendary labors, setting the stage for his epic journey. The city’s rich mythological tapestry sets the stage for an unforgettable journey into the past.

Mycenae also plays a pivotal role in the epic saga of the Trojan War. It was from here that King Agamemnon, the commander of the Greek forces, launched his fleet to besiege Troy. The echoes of Homer’s Iliad resonate through the ancient stones, bringing to life the tales of bravery, betrayal, and the quest for glory that shaped an era.

As you explore Mycenae on this private guided tour, you will be captivated by the grandeur of the Lion Gate, the grand entrance to the citadel, flanked by two imposing lionesses. This masterpiece of Mycenaean architecture is an enduring symbol of the civilization’s power and artistry. The remnants of the Palace, where the rulers of Mycenae once lived and governed, offer a fascinating glimpse into the opulent lifestyle and sophisticated administrative practices of the time. The Tomb of Atreus, also known as the Treasury of Atreus, is a monumental tholos tomb and an architectural marvel. Believed to be the burial place of King Agamemnon, its grandeur and engineering sophistication reflect the wealth and power of Mycenaean society. Mycenae was renowned for its immense wealth, famously described by Homer as “rich in gold.” The archaeological findings, including golden masks, jewelry, and intricate artifacts, attest to the city’s affluence and its central role in the trade networks of the ancient world.

Join us on a private Mycenae excursion, where the echoes of ancient legends and the grandeur of a once-thriving civilization await. Immerse yourself in the stories of heroes and kings, and experience the awe-inspiring remnants of a culture that shaped history. This is more than a tour; it is a journey through time, where every step reveals a new chapter in the epic tale of Mycenae.

Cannot say enough about this tour and how much fun we had! We were 4 couples that have been friends for years. Our tour guide, Zoi, was so knowledgable, yet very interesting and fun. The tour ended with a “light” lunch and Zorba dancers! It was so much fun! Opa!!
