A journey deep in the prehistory of Greece


1 hour




About the Tour

Visiting the magnificent, fortified citadel of Mycenae in the Argolid is literally a journey deep in the prehistory of Greece. This magnificent site gave its name to the great Mycenaean Civilization associated with several myths and legends of the ancient world. The spectacular Grave Circles, the famous Lion Gate and the so-called "Treasury of Atreus" are only some of the highlights of this e-tour, yet aspects of everyday life, mercantile activities, elite ideology and rulership, military technology and the complex bureaucratic system will be discussed as well.

During this e-tour, artefacts and works of art from a number of museums will complement the narrative in order to fully understand the complexity of the citadel and the local society.


This tour has been designed for virtual presentation. This is a group that accommodates up to 20 participants at a time. Once you book this experience, we will send you a confirmation email with a link to join the session. You can access the tour via the link provided


Every tour on Virtual Tour in Greece is supported entirely by your tips. We make our tours free to join to make it accessible to everyone who wants to explore Greece and its wonderful monuments. This, however, only works when everyone tips what they can. The majority of your tips go directly to your guide, while Virtual Tour in Greece only keeps a small portion of the tips earned to keep the platform running smoothly and improving. Every tip counts, as they help our guides and keep the platform growing!
