Off limits at Mycenae
Take a tour with on-site academics on the acropolis of Mycenae, access off-limits areas (Cult Temple, underground cistern, less visited Tholos Tombs), as well as the recently excavated Lower Town. Embark on a private tour of the Mycenae Museum, followed by a drinks reception and lecture (could be on Mycenae or topics including ancient warfare and diplomacy, ancient theater, archaeoastronomy, ancient music and much more) at the Mycenaean Foundation Center.
