Visit A Really, Ridiculously Old City
Located in the Northeast Peloponnese, Mycenae, as in Ruled the Mycenaean Era, is a hillside archeological site that dates back to the Bronze Age, a few 1,000 years before Christ. One of the most fascinating parts of the experiences at this old military stronghold is how freely you can roam the grounds. You can even explore underground, dungeon-like areas at your own risk. Just learn how to use your iPhone's flashlight before doing so.
