    What actually is Ancient Greece?

    I am aware that it follows the Bronze Age Greek collapse(Myceneans) and includes the Greek Dark Ages and Classical period. But does it also include the Hellenistic period?

    I have seen it being used to refer to all of the above mentioned, from Mycenea/Minoa up to Roman Greece and I'm quite confused. Sorry if I come off as ignorant.

    It depends on how can we define Ancient Greece.If considering it in terms of political continuity then this period had been continuing till the Roman conquest.But if we considering it like continuity of pagan cultural tradition then it should be had been continuing till Emperor Justinians termination of funding of the Neoplatonic academy. So , either definitions of this term includes Hellenistic period.

    Yes, ancient Greek history includes everything from the Mycenaean period onwards, with the last part of it being encompassed by the period called Late Antiquity (which is the transitional period leading into the Early Middle Ages).
