The ancient Mycenae is the legendary place of the Atreides and is located amidst two peaks of the of Euboea Mountain range, close to the Argolic Gulf.
This ancient site was already populated in the Neolithic times - about 4000 BCE. Yet in the late bronze age - 1350-1200 BCE - Mycenae flourished and its inhabitans were of great influence to the whole Greek world. During this era, the acropolis was surrounded by massive “cyclopean” walls except on the south east flank where a steep ravine provided natural defence.
Other recommended excursions during Athens bareboat vacations are visits to Spetses, Monemvasia, Kiparisia, Astros and Hydra. To see all of these would require at least a two week vacation and more realistically three weeks of sailing in total. As is the case in most Athens bareboat vacations, the first days will be sailed in the Saronic Gulf, where the Aegina, Methana, Epidavros ports are highly endorsed. Subsequent crossing to the Argolic Gulf via Hydra and Spetses.
