    Ancient Messini
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission excluded
    Start out from your hotel and in less than an hour, you will arrive under the hill of Ithomi, where Ancient Messene is located. Enjoy the full trees stunning scenery and learn about all the myths, traditions and secrets that areas will encounter. First, stop is at the source of village Mauromati. Learn about the legend that reveals the name of the village - a myth that reaches back to the years of ancient Greeks’ mythology and is related to the upbringing of Zeus. The structures you'll first see are the city’s fortification wall and the only surviving entrance gate. They are standing there steadfast from 369 BCE. Stand in front of the Arcadian Gate to admire its splendour and allow the stones to take you back centuries ago, wondering how it feels like to be a Messenian warrior fighting to protect your family. Wander through the same paths where Epaminondas once stepped, the famous general who founded the city on the ruins of Ancient Ithomi, which were the direct result of Spartans’ behaviours as conquerors. But that great man decided to stop the wars and continued exercising "democracy." Just above the ancient city, there's a coffee shop which will play host to you for about an hour before entering the main site. There, you'll learn everything about the foundation of the city, its history and the continuously changing of conquers. Wander around within the ancient city at your leisure within the time allotted. Finally, see the small Archaeological Museum which you'll visit later.

Aristoteleia tailor-made our day's trip for the group of 8 people, starting with an early pickup (& drop off) from Stoupa.
She was able to organise at short notice a tour of the ancient city of Messene with an archaeologist as our very knowledgeable guide.
This was then followed by a trip to the near-by olive mill at Androusa Messinas "The Olive Routes". This included a tour of the mill, olive oil tasting, food matching and a light lunch; followed by a trip to the town's castle and its spectacular views.
Very well organised.
Aristoteleia is a very knowledgeable and amiable host.
