good site to visit

a lovely site to visit especially if you are interested in Greek mythology. Access is via a hilly walk and the steps to the oracle are steep and narrow but really worth a visit

If you enjoy Greek history, you will enjoy this small archaeological site. It only costs €2 to get in and there are signs in English explaining the history of the site. It only take 45 – 60 minutes to go around, so it is not perhaps worth a special journey, we called in travelling from the Acheron River to Ammoudia.... More

This is a real archeological site with ruins a museum etc. it's well presented with plaques in English to explain what your looking at. The Greek mythology behind the site is interesting. The site small though so will only occupy you for 45 minutes to an hour. Worth seeing as part of a bigger excursion though. Entrance is only 2... More

the trip consisted of a boat trip up the Acheron River (Achilles), a coach trip to the Nekromenteion (Hades/Phersephone), then lunch followed by a trip to the very 'refreshing' springs. A great day out, bring swimming gear.

This is a strange place and worth a visit. the ruins of the buildings still shows how exact the walls were built. If the history is correct it is amazing what took place there. Descend into the underground chamber and you will feel something strange!!

The museum was not open, so there was not much information. THe view is stunning. This is a good add on to the Acheron River tour, but would not really be worth going if it is your only destination.

Perched on a hill above the Acheron valley, the Nekromanteion is a must for anyone interested in Greek history and architecture.

Very interesting story attached to this place. If you like Ancient history you will love it. We went to Zolonga on the same day. Also a great place but 2 or 3 hundred steps to climb !! Cant remember the number exactly. We went on a cloudy day this made it easier to climb. Sandra and David Bonser from Nottinghamshire
