You will visit different parts of the archaeological site, including the largest final bronze necropolis in Europe, with its 5,000 grotto tombs; the Byzantine villages of San Micidiario and San Nicolicchio, which will fascinate you with their rock churches dating back to the 4th century; the Anaktoron, the palace of Prince Hyblon, seat of local power from the 12th century BC.
