Experience a day tour to Ancient Messene from Kalamata, on a luxury vehicle with a local English speaking tour leader!
A minimum number of 2 participants is required for this tour
Ancient Messene, a city founded 2500 years ago, is located 30 km to the north of Kalamata and was one of the most important cities of Messinia.
Most of the things you would expect to find in an ancient Greek city are here; a theatre (one of the biggest in the ancient world), a large agora (civic center and market), temples, tombs and a large gymnasium converted by the Romans into an arena.
Set off with your escort by luxury vehicle and visit the Archeological Site of Ancient Messene.
The first monument to be seen when descending from the museum to the archaeological site is the theatre, which was used for mass political gatherings. The Stadium and Gymnasium are amongst the most impressive and well preserved buildings on the site. Explore among others the Arcadian gate, The Asclepieion and the Temples of Zeus Soter and Poseidon.
After spending 2 hours exploring Messene, we head back to our meeting point.
