... see the acropolis of Argos. Apparently it has an amphitheater larger than the one at Epidavros. Clearly there is a vast amount of ancient sites in Greece! First up at Mycenae was the beehive tomb known as the Treasury of Artreus. It was built with no mortar - and of very heavy individual blocks. Then we went up to the fortress city of Mycenae.

How often do you get a chance to wander through a citadel where Greek heros or mythical gods have strutted their stuff ?

We were in the Peloponnese, a region of southern Greece that since ancient times has played a major role in Greek history. When the Minoan civilization declined after 1450 BC, the focus of power in the ancient Aegean world moved from Crete to the hill-fortress palaces of Mycenae and Tiryns in the Peloponnese.
