All about the trip
This museum trip and walking tour is aimed at all ancient history lovers!
Eretria was an important ancient Greek city founded on a natural harbor. It was mentioned in Homer’s classic poem, “The Iliad” as a “City of Rowers” which sent ships out to the Trojan War. However, after a long war with Chalkis over control of the fertile Lelantine Plain, it was eventually defeated and destroyed. Ironically though, more ancient ruins have survived in Eretria than its rival, Chalkis; therefore there is still plenty to see.
We begin this tour with an introductory lecture by distinguished archaeologist, Dr Konstantinos Politis, at the Eretria Archaeological Museum.
We will also visit the ruins of Temple of Apollo Daphnephoros. We then move onto the ‘House with Mosaics’, where you will discover well-preserved streets, a gymnasium, and houses all from ancient antiquity.
