This one takes you back in time. The tour begins with a short drive to the Arcadian Gate, an impressive structure that once acted as an entrance to the ancient city of Messini. There’ll be a short stop, so you can take some photos before getting back on the coach. From here, you’ll head for the archaeological site of Messini, which dates all the way back to 146 BC. You’ll find plenty in the way of treasures here, including an almost-intact theatre, the ruins of a 3rd-century temple, a time-worn sanctuary and a Byzantine monastery. You’ll have an hour to explore, before moving on to the pretty village of Messini, about ten minutes away. Making our stop at Messini quaint village, you’ll have some time to wander around its square with just enough time to grab a traditional coffee, before making your way back to the ship.
