The place known as Mycenae is no longer a community in Greece, but a ruins some distance from Corinth to the north, and Navplion to the south.  Mycenae dates back to 1600 BC in the bronze age when folks wore loin cloths and fought with clubs after they emerged from caves.  The Mycenae we saw was a fascinating relic from ancient history.   Navplion was a highlight of the evening and next day with an island fortress in its small bay and the ancient castle on the hill which was visible from our hotel a few miles north of town.
