If you're near to Mykene, you should really go there. It's a well preserved antique Greek city, digged out by the german Heinrich Schliemann in the 19th century (yes, he is the same archeologist who discovered Troy, so you should take a look at Mykene as well). The famous golden mask of Agamemnon was found here. Unfortunately, all the interesting things are in the national museum of Athens. To complete a visit of Mykene, I recommend to visit this museum, for there are still some very nice things you should see if you are interested in the ancient Greeks.
