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.

An awesome site which also has a beautiful view over the landscape. These people knew how to choose their spot! Not a lot of people here so it was quite peaceful. There is not a lot of info there though, so I did some reading afterwords.

The bus from Nafplio can you let you of there, I walked back: Not that great in the afternoon heat to be honest, but definitely possible.

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.

There are guide books for purchase from the ticket booth. Or you can ask the woman who works there your questions. She was helpful, intelligent, knows her history and is informative. It was an important visit for us- I had driven by on 2 different trips to Greece and not stopped -but this time I made a concerted effort and very glad I did. Knowing a bit of Ancient Greek history certainly helps on your walk about. I felt awe inspired by the spiritual and physical strength of these ancient people. A very powerful place, for us anyhow- being Ancient Greek history buffs. We will go again no doubt.

The low Hill of Tiryns was inhabited from the Neolithic Age down to the late Antiquity. During the Prehistoric period, the site flourished particularly in the Bronze age. Built with different levels of citadels allows a good walking grounds to see various Mycenaean ruins. Might be a bore to those who do not appreciate history.
