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.

Lost 8 euros (2 adults) and 1 hour of my precious traveling time. There is nothing inside. No signs, no places to visit. It is more beautiful from outside. Avoid!!!

We had not intended to stop here since guidebooks didn't give it a fantastic write-up; however, our Airbnb host recommended we stop by for a visit. Trusting his recommendation, we stopped by on our way out of town. It is well worth the visit simply...More

Nafplio is a stop for most people who visit Mycenae, so if you're a fan of Homer, this is worth a stop. It isn't as extensive as Mycenae but it's worth checking out to check it off your list.
