Travel to the dawn of history with the mythical tales of Homer and visit the citadel of Mycenae accompanied by a self-guided audio tour on your phone.   

 

Your tour begins at the entrance of the archaeological site, where, upon encountering the massive Cyclopean walls of Mycenae, you will listen to the fascinating tales about its construction by one-eyed giants. The mythical founding of the city is equally surprising and so are the stories of its kings and queens. The crime of Tantalus, the progenitor of the royal family is nothing less but an omen of the curse which befell the House of Atreus. Gear yourself up for all the terrible events you are going to learn about once you walk below the imposing Lion Gate of the Mycenaean citadel!

As you experience the site, feeling its pervasive mysterious aura, you will follow in the footsteps of its early inhabitants. Your audio guide will shed light upon various aspects of daily life, fashion, eating habits and funerary traditions of a civilization lost in prehistory. Your tour, finally, culminates with the massive beehive tomb, once believed to be the burial site of King Agamemnon. There you will admire its jaw-dropping tholos and learn about the king’s murder by his vengeful queen, the notorious Clytemnestra!

 

When back from Mycenae, you will know for good that myths are not always children stories and that sometimes archaeological findings, before unearthed, were washed in blood!
