Day 4 – Tiryns

They’ve changed the entrance to the site to the north and access is much restricted, so that it’s impossible to walk in, or even view the site’s impressive arched chambers. Even the guy guarding the site thought it was odd. For example, it is impossible to walk around the outside of the walls (mentioned in Homer), perhaps its most important feature.

Had lunch in the fish restaurant round the bay before swimming from the pebbly north beach, only frequented by Greeks. Tried one of the ghastly fish restaurants on the seafront in town for evening meal, but they’re awful.
