I remember having answered this query earlier ... anyway ...
"Mycenae" was Bronze Age Greece' Southernmost part's Metropolis, built by mainland Greek Immigrants.
The city was connected to the Mainland, by an isthmus connecting Southernmost Greece with the mainland Greece ... in the Classical sense ...
Southernmost Greece, was then known by the name of Peloponnesus ...
The City, hence, its inhabitants ... Mycenaeans were destroyed circa 468 BC. They had control over the Eastern Mediterranean, and their Culture in some ways is quite distinct from the mainland Greek Culture and Civilization.
Reckon the Archealogical, and the Apocryphal, is not a part of this question, if it is, then you will have to read History and Greek Archealogy.
