Visit Mycenae of the Bronze Age
Mycenae is an archaeological site in Greece, which was a fortified late Bronze Age city located between two hills on the Argolid plain of the Peloponnese. The acropolis today dates from between the 14th and 13th century BCE when the Mycenaean civilization was at its peak of power, influence and artistic expression.
Located about 90 km (56 miles) southwest of Athens, in the north-eastern Peloponnese. Argos is 11 km (7 miles) to the south; Corinth, 48 km (30 miles) to the north. From the hill on which the palace was located, one can see across the Argolid to the Saronic Gulf.
