What's included

Skip-the-line entrance to the archaeological site of Ancient Messene (Ancient Messini)
Entrance to the Museum of Ancient Messene
  • Roam ruins that date back to 369 BC, when the city of Messene was founded after a Spartan defeat
  • Marvel at the most intact ancient Greek stadium, alongside other amazing examples of classic Grecian architecture
  • See preserved artifacts dating back to the days of antiquity inside the Museum of Ancient Messene

The foundation of Messene begins with bloodshed: the Theban general, Epaminondas, stood off against an opposing Spartan force at the Battle of Leuctra. The city that was built after the battle stood as a testament to his victory.

Discover one of Ancient Greece's later cities and see the well-preserved stadium, along with classical columnated structures. Aside from the archaeological site, you'll also be able to enjoy further insight into the past at the Museum of Ancient Messene.
