Don’t bother. Site is badly signed, down unmade road at the end. You have a €4.00 charge, no signs, no information, just a site with low walls. The setting, in between two oil refineries, is a complete waste of time. Should be taken out of...More

Lonely planet says this site is well worth a visit if you can find it - yes, finding it is hard! (only possible with your own car). As the previous reviewer says, it is an exceptional site but probably not worth a visit to the...More

Do NOT visit this exceptional archeological site. Sure, it displays one of the earliest known agoras, among other things, but it is practically invisible, since the whole site is left totally neglected. Acess to the site is through a muddy path, the ruins are hidden...More
