These are the ruins of the ancient greek town of Naxos dating back to 734BC. The excavated ruins are extensive but largely bits of old walls and are spread out across a large and hot site. The museum has 2 buildings containing maritime items (mainly...More

It's very important area, because it shows the original site of first Greek setlers who start colonising the Magna Graecia. However, the whole area doesn't bring that atmosphere which is quite a shame. It could be so much more, and it should be so much...More

This is a small museum that could be so much more. It relates the the initial settling of Sicily by the Greeks and I would imagine that it's a very important part of Italian and Sicilian history. Unfortunately, the museum and site do not reflect...More

Not worth visiting. A pile of rubble on the ground. Museum probably the worst I have ever seen. Only cost 4 euros.... save your money

The archaeological "park" is actually empty and not well maintained, wile the museum is old and doesn't worth the visit. Pity, since it is one of the oldest greek towns in the island. Free entrance on Sundays
