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.

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.
