  • The most unique ancient city. I have visited it since 1965. Every time is a new fulfilling experience
  • A phenomenal and great site to visit. It's a unique combination of a compelling ancient site yet with few tourists. If you are in Messinia and must-see destination.
  • Atmospheric, spectacular site of classical Greece but without hordes of tourists. Could do with a little more by way of explanation.
  • ENG - ITA review ENG: it's a must see, one of the best archeological sites in Greece. The site is big and there is a little museum outside the site (at the beginning of the road that leads to the site) that gathers the survived statues from the site. It's possible to park in front of the entrance of the site such as near the little museum (also for caravans). ITA: é una tappa obbligatoria, uno dei migliori siti archeologici della Grecia. Il sito è grande e c'è un piccolo museo (all'inizio della strada che porta al sito) che raccoglie le statue sopravvissute del sito. È possibile parcheggiare di fronte all'entrata del sito così come vicino al piccolo museo (anche per le roulotte).
  • One of the most complete and interesting antiquities site you could visit. Sadly overlooked by many due to its relatively isolated location. Definitely in my top 5 list for Greece.
