Top Local Tips for Mikines

Mycenae -- off the beaten track but a worthwhle stop I got the impression from talking with others that many tourists skip Mycenae; however, this is a fascinating historical site (supposedly the fortress of the House of Atreus of Trojan War fame) and in a beautiful area besides. I would suggest staying overnight here as we did. We left Athens, stopped for several hours at ancient Corinth and Acrocorinth, then stayed overnight in Mycenae. We toured the ruins in the morning, then drove on to Nafplion and were there by early afternoon. This made for a relaxing, and fun two days at the beginning of our odyssey of the Peloponese. As at most historical sites in Greece, there was a museum at Mycenae as well as the ruins.

To every thing there is a season "In the ruins of Mycenae...there are also underground chambers of Atreus and his children, in which were stored their treasures. There is the grave of Atreus, along with the graves of such as returned with Agamemnon from Troy" (Pausanias, II.16.6). How can one resist visiting such a place! And yet, a stay at a nearby hotel such as La Petite Planete is made better still when the weather is good and there are fewer crowds. Our visit there would have been much less satisfying had a tour bus also been booked. Given the expense of travel and the reward it offers, a holiday in the off-season makes that time even more rewarding.
