A special site if you enjoy swimming near ancient sites. See the Asini Acropolis, have lunch at the nearby cafe, and swim in a secluded cove with a view of Tolo and the sea. A special place on the earth.

Ancient Asine can be easily reached by foot from Tolon. The whole site has been well restored with good pathways (although some are very steep), a video (which is shown until 2.30pm each day) and a small museum. Incredible to learn of the events which...More

It is a place where it deserves someone to visit it. You feel that you are back in the ancient times, it is a very nicely preserved and you can make a walk that lasts about 20 min and can see unbelievable beautiful images.

We visited ancient Asini in 2014.That time a big work was in progress. To climb up to the top was possible, but not easy, since the walking tracks up to the top were less than half ready. Nevertheless the quiet peace and the stunning view...More
