Although this site is not as spectacular as Mycenae or Nemea, it is still well worth the visit while in the area.

You can see this site from the road, but it is well worth the admission to get in. There are many photo opportunities here, including the tall Cyclopean walls and winding staircases. The site is pretty quaint and takes under an hour to see. It...More

The citadel is impressive and the restoration is well explained. Yet the solo visit is not provided with more explanation in situ. Walking and seeing through the large walls is pleasant

Impressive structures, huge walls surrounding the site of the Mycenaean fortress. Easily accessible from the main road near Nafplion. Allow plenty of time to tour the area and wear comfortable shoes.

Not quite as imposing or impressive as Mycenae, this is nevertheless an interesting site to visit. Beware of the 3pm closing time in winter - makes it quite challenging to combine with other ancient sites in the same day if you want to see the...More

Tiryns is an amazing place to visit, and the thickness of the walls and the completeness of the site are two reasons to do so. However, it would really benefit from better on site explanations, such as you have at Mycenae, and from some tidying...More

Tiryns is not as spectacular as Mycenae - being on the plain rather than a hill-top but it's ground plan is much more oomprehensible.

Tiryns is a site in the same WHS as Mycaenae. It's a hill with fortifications which is another example of the Mycaenian culture. The site is more chilled with less people, but still very interesting.
