Mycenae Archaeological Site & Agamemnon Tomb Skip-the-Line Ticket
Skip-the-Line access to one of the most importanct archaeological sites of Greece and a UNESCO world heritage site. The Mycenaeans were very strategic and were always choosing the places to built their citadels having always in mind the defensive advantage over the attacks by their enemies. Therefore Mycenae was built at the one side of the lush valley, where most of the inhabitants of it would be occupied with farming, with the very steep and rocky mountains on the other side. There was only one way to reach the citadel and that was extremely well fortified, even more than what they really needed. The cyclopean walls, consisted by huge conglomerate blocks of local stone, still make us wonder how they managed to move them all the way up there. Cannons, guns and similar weapons did not exist at the time, which makes us think that these walls were mostly there to scare off the enemy and to show off how wealthy and powerful they were.
