Don’t bother. Site is badly signed, down unmade road at the end. You have a €4.00 charge, no signs, no information, just a site with low walls. The setting, in between two oil refineries, is a complete waste of time. Should be taken out of...More

Do NOT visit this exceptional archeological site. Sure, it displays one of the earliest known agoras, among other things, but it is practically invisible, since the whole site is left totally neglected. Acess to the site is through a muddy path, the ruins are hidden...More
