That was my 3rd visit over the years still there is lots to be done to reconstruct the ancient city harbour. It's 1.5 km from the last cafe so avoid walking in the heat. It's open 10 to 3 Tuesday to Friday. Entry is free...More
It's surprisingly interesting. Look at the site close your eyes and see it how it was. A city as yet only partially excavated, a pirate lair destroyed by the Romans.
The old mooring stones with cable holes after thousands of years despite an earth tremor...More
Very vast area full of ruins. The ruins are basically just piled of rock but some of them do form a partial structure , you have to use your imagination to figure out what it looked like 1000s of years ago. However , it had...More
Ancient Falassarna is a hidden gem
Well worth a visit.
A interesting insight to 400 BC what life must have been like in ancient times
A walk along the coast nearby is also very impressive

The history behind is great. The location is great, near the great Falasarna beach and it takes couple of hours to make a round if you really pay attention to every detail. The remaings to see there are ok, but not clearly marked, which part...More
Only because I am a history and archaeology buff did we go through the unpaved roads and olive groves to get to this site. The site was actually closed on a Saturday (strange because you would think weekends would be their busy time). The site...More
The place is visited by just a fraction of the tourists visiting the nearby sandy beaches. Unfortunately there are no facilities or guides so be prepared. The gate closes before sunset. Remember to have a hat and a bottle of water with you.
