Your excursion will involve a visit to various sites. Firstly, a visit to the archaeological museum in Limenas. Here, you will find 18 galleries and over 1700 objects and collections that date back as far as the 7th century B.C. to the 7th century A.D. It is an establishment that holds so much Greek history, and is perfect for the enthusiast, or just for those out for sightseeing. An interesting fact about the museum- it has an underground space with ruins that date back to the classical and Roman eras. Another interesting fact- on eastern Macedonia and Thrace, the archaeological museum of Limenas is the most significant of its kind. It is a fascinating space to visit, and our tour will make that possible for you.
The tour will also involve a stop at other sites such as ancient Agora, an ancient structure that dates back to the 4th century B.C. This place was discovered by the French archaeological school, with excavations beginning in 1948 and ending in 1955. Ancient Agora is an incredible place to visit. It is a time capsule of sorts and a piece of the past centuries that shows us today what people in this Greek island of Thassos used to do for a living, their religion, along with their politics back then. It is a must-see, and, once again, our tour will make that possible.
