Meet the Myceneans with kids

A family-oriented guided tour in Mycenae and the ancient city’s civilization

The center of the Mycenean civilization, the “rich in gold” as Homer describes, Mycenae was founded by Perseus, the hero who killed the gorgon Medusa. Fortified by the Cyclops, legendary and impressive, Mycenae was the mythical kingdom of King Eurystheus who ordered Hercules to execute the twelve labors and the historical kingdom of Agamemnon, thus the place from which the Trojan War began.

Step through the Lion Gate and enter the citadel. Try to imagine the life at the palace and the joy that archaeologist Schliemann felt when he revealed a treasure trove of grave burials, today hosted at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.
