  • Much has happened in Messene since our last visit 13 years ago. The excavations continue, and in the meantime it has uncovered many more parts of the ancient mega-city. Rarely, you have the chance to experience the complexity of an entire city in such a good state of preservation at archaeological sites. In addition iThome very picturesque is the ancient city on the slopes of the mountain, and was not too crowded during our visit as such as Olympia. We were thrilled and recommend this goal at a Peloponnese tour schedule. The entrance fee is currently 12,00 Euro p. P.

  • Very nice plant! Wide range of structures: STOA, theatre, Stadium, Temple, Asklepion, mosaic floors, city wall and gates etc. Everything is also close together and well described. At the entrance, there is also a booklet with well-made reconstruction drawings and brief background information. But especially much is (progressing the stadium) great get! So here something you see and can imagine better as it once was. Maybe not the historical awareness other sites, but no less worth seeing!

  • Very nice site, quite small so easy to visit and enjoy. The stage is beautifully preserved, and all is sufficiently well developed to engage our teens and their parents (compared to other sites to make an effort of imagination).

  • 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.
  • Stunning site everything in one place, ruins, theatre. Temples. gymnasium. Fountains. Running water. Amphitheatre. Greek and later Roman. museum. See also nearby arcades gate
  • A well preserved site with a small museum. Worth a visit if you're in the Kalamata area. There were no crowds when we were there.
  • A breathtaking site, very well preserved and not crowdy. Museum is rather small but nice.
  • Absolutely worth a visit
