Mycenae and the lost civilization

From Epidaurus we move quickly inland to the arid hills, destination of our next archaeological excursion, near the fortified acropolis of ancient Mycenae. We lose ourselves again in the Homeric accounts of Achaeans, Trojans and the love and warlike vicissitudes of the peoples who crossed the Aegean and the Peloponnese in the Archaic period.

In Mycenae we find good friends, an unexpected storm and a little rest after a few days of long journeys.

Travel tip: experience the thrill of being the only guests of the spartan Camping Atreus, right at the entrance to the modern village of Mycenae.
