What to expect

Messene is a significant ancient city in terms of its size, form, and state of preservation. It has the advantage of never having been destroyed or covered by later settlements, and is located on an unspoiled inland site. With the help of your guide, you'll spend a full day learning its amazing history and uncovering all its secrets.

The first stop of your tour of Ancient Messene will be the village Mauromati, where you'll be told the legend that reveals the its name. You'll be amazed by the structures of the city’s fortification wall and the only surviving entrance gate to the ancient city: they've been standing there since 369 BC. You'll enter through the Arcadian Gate and you'll admire its splendor; try to imagine how it felt to be a Messenian warrior going to battle.
When you finish the tour inside the archaeological site, your guide will be waiting with cool water, ready to answer all your questions before ending your trip with a visit to the small Archaeological Museum.
