    It's always nice to be in these ancient sites. We can't stop back into the story more or less tragic or happy of these civilizations. Anyway the victory is no longer at Samothrace but at the Louvre! We will certainly go to visit him soon.

    I was stunned by the beauty of this place! We had no idea what to expect and thought we'd go to take a look. At the end we spend 4 hours there and filled our soul with images of great beauty! Amazing!  more »

    That was a nice surprise! The location within the forest makes you feel like being part of the ancient mysteries. Part of the ruins are very nicely reconstructed

    This is a must see if you are in Samothraki. It has such history that you can literally touch. There is very little standing between you (if any) and the exhibits and no lines. A gem.

    It's the trees and the morning light here that's amazing.
