This is a place that guided tours go to - however we went by car and glad we did. The guided tours we observed didn't stay long, yet there is so much to see and learn. Had a good three hour walk around this place and learned and saw so much. Well worth the small entrance fee!!

Horrible place to see nothing else than whey growing... Siis ei täällä ole yhtää mitään nähtävää. 4€ rahastivat, toivottavasti kolikot meni hyvään tarkoitukseen.

Do yourself a favour, if you're going to partake in the view from the top then climb all the stairs and resist the urge to turn around until you reach the top. It is well worth it. In it's day the buildings could be seen from the port which must have provided those who had journeyed to visit history's first... More

Hippocrates - the father of Medicine, worked there.You can have a look at the remains of the ancient spas and springs, which are still in good condition. You may choose to enter the site at the national day of museums when the entrance is free. Entrance is also... More

The site is not very impressive but it is quite big. So I had to walk a lot but that was the best part of the visit. I loved the upper part from where you can admire nice view to the site and far beyond, all the way to the sea.... It is good to learn about site history before... More

This is well worth a visit, well preserved and very interesting with a lot of history. Beware, it is on three levels with a lot of steps to climb up to the top level. There is a winding path on one side you can use to avoid the steps and there are amazing views to see at the top. Be... More

We visited here as part of a fantastic tour our guide was very informed throughout the whole tour which finished with a demonstration on how to cook a Greek dish which was served as the included lunch before completing the tour.
