Mycenae invites you to discover its fascinating legends with an original audio tour! Follow in the footsteps of its early inhabitants while your audio guide will shed light upon various aspects of daily life, fashion, eating habits and funerary traditions of a civilization lost in prehistory. You will also explore one of the most famed crime scenes of the Heroic Age while weaving through the ruins where the so-called Mask of Agamemnon was unearthed by the famed archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann. The stories of Agamemnon, Clytemnestra, and their children will come alive through a riveting storytelling concept. 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! * Note that the audio tour covers the areas of the archaeological site & the Treasury of Atreus. It doesn’t include a tour of the museum. Ticket/entrance fee to the archaeological site is not included.
