For one of the most important archeological sites on Samos and Greece there is just not enough information inside, so make sure you bring the information with you or try to eavesdrop on an organized tour. Bring plenty of liquids, you can't buy anything inside....More

We couldn’t believe how large this area was. We went by coach with TUI who provided us with an archaeologist who really made it interesting. Fabulous place.

Glad to visit this heritage site, but is neglected and need lots of attention to detail. It’s basically run down and if I was part of the government I would be deeply embarrassed to let it be in the condition it is.
