Story of Troy War - Epidaurus, Mycenae & Treasury of Atreus

Description

''Mycenaean'' is the term applied to the art and culture of Greece from ca. 1600 to 1100 B.C. The name derives from the site of Mycenae in the Peloponnese region, where once stood a great Mycenaean fortified palace. Mycenae is celebrated by Homer as the seat of King Agamemnon, who led the Greeks in the Trojan War. In modern archaeology, the site first gained renown through Heinrich Schliemann's excavations in the mid-1870s, which brought to light objects whose opulence and antiquity seemed to correspond to Homer's description of Agamemnon's palace. The extraordinary material wealth deposited in the Shaft Graves at Mycenae (ca. 1550 B.C.) attests to a powerful elite society that flourished in the subsequent four centuries.

THE ANCIENT SITE OF MYCENAE

Mycenae is a very important archaeological site in Greece which was once the city at the center of Mycenaean civilization between
1600 BC and 1100 BC. Believed to have been inhabited since Neolithic age, Mycenae flourished into a fortified city which was ruled at one time by the famous King Agamemnon.
At its peak, Mycenae was one of the most important Ancient Greek cities.

The most impressive of the burial sites and arguably the most remarkable of Mycenae's sites is the Tomb of King Agamemnon, also known as the Treasury of Atreus.
This elaborated ancient tomb is carved into Mycenae's hills.

We are leaving this wonderful ancient place for the next destination, the site of EPIDAURUS and the famous ancient Theater.
Reputed to be founded by or named for the Argolid Epidaurus, and to be the birthplace of Apollo's son Asclepius the healer,
Epidaurus was known for its sanctuary, which is situated about five miles (8 km) away from the town, as well as its theater, which is again in use today.

The theater was designed by Polykleitos the Younger in the 4th century BC. The Asclepeion at Epidaurus was the most celebrated healing center of the Classical world, the place where ill people went in the hope of being cured.

The bus will start in the afternoon the return route, from Epidaurus to your hotel in Athens, with approx. time of 1 hour 30 minutes.
