Explore one of Greece’s most important archaeological sites on a private day trip to ancient Messene from Costa Navarino. Journey to the well-preserved Greek city, spread over an open hillside, and explore the ruins, seeing the city gate, theater, sanctuaries, and stadium. Plus, visit the museum and nearby Mavromati.
Stop at: Ancient Messini
Our first stop will be in the village of Mauromati. We will tell you the legend that gave the name of the village: a myth that reaches back to the years of ancient Greek mythology, and is related to the upbringing of Zeus.
You will be amazed by the structures of the city’s fortification wall and the only surviving entrance gate to the ancient city. They are standing there since 369 BC. We will enter through the Arcadian Gate, and can admire its splendor, and try to imagine how it felt to be a Messenian warrior going to battle.
Stop at: Archaeological Museum of Messenia
When you finish the tour at the archaeological site, we will be waiting right there with cool water ready to answer all your questions.
The small archaeological museum which will be our next stop will amaze you!
