Some of the mosaics here are incredible. So intricate. The work to get them right with what would have been difficult tools by today's standards.
Fascinating historical site. Most of the site are ruins under open skies (bar two ancient villas which are built over). You'll need about two hours to roam around and admire 3-2 thousand year old buildings and mosaics. There is virtually no shade and cover (some at the entrance and some roughly half way through the tour). Be prepared to sweat and do wear sunscreen. The site is self guided. Written explanations are provided in Greek and English at every point. There were no audio or guided tours when we visited. Toilets and water on-site. Snack wending machines are the only source of food. The signposting is somewhat sporadic, but as it is an open site, it is hard to get lost (the lighthouse is bang in the middle and visible from every point. Just pretend you are a ship :))
Half day program, if you want to really enjoy this amazing area. There are a lot of mosaics in really good conditions. The location and view from there also beautiful.
Nice place near the sea if you have plenty of time and you love history/ruins- you can go there. As for me - I’ve visited this place only because of the lighthouse on this territory,I’m not a big fan of the ruins etc.
I was really impressed. The mosaics blew me away. Lot of walking involved to get round everything. Some people have commented saying it's boring - that it's barren land and just ruins. Don't really know what else they expected... Maybe if they took time to read the signs and learn things maybe they would have benefited from it! And for €4.50 entry you can't really complain. The amphitheatre was my favourite.. great photo opportunities. Very informative and interesting overall. Note to everyone reading: we got through 2 1.5 litre bottles of water! And make sure to wear comfy shoes.. no sandals / flip flops!
