It is unfortunate that the basic free maps are rather poor and the girl in the Information Office in Korissia was so poor and uninterested. We got so much better advice for the lovely lady at the Red Tractor Farm. They have obviously had people...More
If you don't know where to start, leave your car at 37.5702806, 24.3163551. Route number 6 it's a easiest one. It will take you to main beach. Perfect place for snorkeling. 3m from shore you can enjoy wildlife, unlike popular beaches where is only sand....More
Steep walk down a beautiful path, only for the fully able-bodied, about 45 minutes walk each way (we reckoned it’s about 3km each way) but so worthwhile. Totally uncommercial, no signs, no rubbish, idyllic when you get down to the beach. Clear water, fish, snorkelling....More

This isn wonderful archeological site and gives one pause when considering the vast culture and millennia that once dominated the region. It is a short hike from the main road. The beach area is good as well.
It is not the most impressive archaelogical site you can visit in Greece but the location is very beautiful and peaceful. Do not expect something like the Acropolis in Athens. Actually there is not much to see, they are still excavating an extensive area, but...More
