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.

Athens History

Athens, GreeceDuring the Archaic period, a lot of Greek cities flourished in terms of political, philosophical, and of course artistic developments.  All of these were destroyed when Persians invaded Greece in 480 BC.  At 479 BC, Persian invasion came to an end and Athens took the lead in bringing the Greek civilization back by reconstructing the destroyed temples and buildings. Around 4th century BC, Athens developed even more in the arts like literature, structures, and architecture.  Politically, they were able to bring back the democratic government.  The center of civic life was Agora, a place in Athens.  It was a marketplace and a place where...
