A definite must to come by and see. It dates back to 5.500Bc and is a Neolithic settlement amongst the lakes and marshes. Tour guide is good and explains everything so well. Great little tourist shop too.

Must visit it. A 7000 years settlement of neolithic historical period. It is rebuilt from the clues of the excavation of the university of Macedonia.

this is a small openair museum where neolithic habitats have been reconstructed to give visitors an idea of how lake dwellers lived. Again it is best to join a guided tour to understand the site.

Hello Andrea, You can very easily google it in google.maps. It is about 2h trip from Hgoumenitsa to Dispilio by car. I can't help you if you want to use local transportation.
