Mysterious Mycenae

Join Rick as he digs into ancient Greece's Mycenae, a hilltop fortress on the Peloponnesian Peninsula that dominated the Greek world between 1600 and 1200 BC, a thousand years before the rise of Athens. We'll walk through the grand Lion's Gate, down into the ancient cistern, along the "cyclopean" walls, and explore the remarkable royal tombs of this fabled city.

Explore the mysteries of Mycenae for yourself: Join a Rick Steves Athens & the Heart of Greece tour (and save $100 on seats remaining for select June 2024 departures!)
