Archeology and Nature - 3 hours


It is a walking tour and lasts 3 hours.
This tour adds at the visit of the whole archeological site the one of a natural and protected area called Kolymbetra Garden.
It is but not a flower garden but consists mostly of spontaneous vegetation and a citrus grove.
The groves and the orchyard are cultivated with traditional methods and the site occupes the area of an ancient greek "Kolymbetra" (that means basin, or artificial lake) actually dried but providing a very fertile soil to the plants.

The tour involves a 3 km long walk with uneasy steps. It is not suitable for people with walking difficulties.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a great time with Sara. She was extremely knowlegable and personable. She didn't rush us through the tour and gave us additional information about the surrounding area. She even called a restaurant she recommended for reservations (and the restaurant was fantastic). We really couldn't have been happier. Great tour. You can't go wrong.
