Poliohni is one of the most important archaelogical places. The location is very good with great view towards the sea. Ruins from all the periods of the city give a glimpse of its history.

Visited Poliochni for the second time in two years. Site amazing - layer upon layer of houses on cliff above a long and beautiful beach. You are walking on tiny pieces of pottery which have been there for centuries which in itself is mind- blowing....More
