  • Stunning site everything in one place, ruins, theatre. Temples. gymnasium. Fountains. Running water. Amphitheatre. Greek and later Roman. museum. See also nearby arcades gate
  • Amazing to see so many ancient buildings, it is really big and they did build a lot back up.
  • Unbelievable location in a great state of preservation. By far the most impressive objective in the Peloponnese peninsula. Saw it at Golden hour in late September. Breathtaking!
  • One of the best preserved archaeological sites in Greece! A "must" see both in Messinia and in Peloponnesus.
  • By far Ancient Messene is the best and most well preserved ancient site. After visiting the Acropolis, Ancient Messene should be your second destination. Fortunately the site has not been destroyed by recent settlements and the excevations by the archaeologist Themelis has an excellent result. Include it in your itinerary and you will not forget it.
