It is completely empty. Waste of time. 2 dark parts under hill. 1 closed. No single lamp or info there. Save time and spend it more for impressive Mykenes fortress.

Part of the ancient Mycenae site, just a little down the road from the main site, but included in your overall ticket. Don't miss it! It is a huge domed top tomb and was pretty cool. Very quick on your way out.

You can visit this after the ruins and museum at Mycenae. Very short walk from parking area there. Not much to see but the entrance ticket is included in the one for Mycenae.

It is nearby the main site, and it is different than everything we saw in Greece. It is a tall cone structure, possibly tomb, or maybe a treasury room? It is better to fantasize about royal tomb, than about the storage for gold. Try echo.

This is a brief stop going to or from Mycenae. It's fascinating to see the architecture of the tomb. And it is nice to get out of the sun!

This dates back to 3500 BC and is the oldest dome in the world - totally worth seeing. We got lucky in having an amazing guide. It doesnt take very long to see and naturally combine it with the ancient city also, and the whole...More

The "beehive tomb" is located down the road from Mycenae. The same ticket gains you entrance. It is well preserved and definitely worth a visit. There is no signage so a guidebook would be helpful to provide historical information. Acoustics are incredible.
