NOT TO MISS EXCURSIONS!

Day 1: HISTORY & CULTURE | Excursion at impressing Archaeological sites.

Ancient Maroneia was one of the three most important city-states in Thrace region, along with Abdera and Aenos. Its incredible size, along with the fact that it has passed a golden age, both made apparent from the excavated ruins, that are so vast that it will take quite some time to visit in their entirety. Cicones were the first people to inhabit this area at around 800 BCE. The village quickly grew to an ancient city that became a commercial and nautical centre of ancient times. The ancient theatre was built in the Hellenistic times and had a capacity of 2500 spectators.

 Ancient Mesimvria-Zoni is one of the six cities of the Samothakian Perea, that citizens of Samothraki built on the Thracian coast across from their island. The ancient city that was excavated originally thought to be Mesimvria but later data hypothesize that it might actually be Zoni and this is why you might encounter it with a double name “Mesimvria-Zoni”. The city was wealthy and renown. Various amazing houses have been excavated at the north of the city, of which the most unique is a house that was had its floor staged on reversed narrow-base amphoras, in order to avoid humidity!

Day 2: ECO-TOURISM & CULTURE | Excursion at Dadia Forrest and Soufli

A visit at the famous Dadia Forest, the crown jewel of Evros Prefecture and a haven of all birds of prey in Greece. It is of enormous ecological importance since it hosts one of the largest and most diverse populations of raptors and reptiles in a protected area of 7.300ha. In its two main protection regions nest more than 120 species of birds. Alongside the abundant summer and winter visitors, a total of 227 species have been recorded. Bird watching requires careful and discreet movements following the well designed and labelled forest trails. An alternative is to ride a small bus of the Dadias ecotourism centre to the observatory opposite the so-called “Taeestra” (The Feed).

Before returning to the hotel, you will stop at Soufli. At the Soufli Silk Museum you will find a detailed presentation of all the phases of sericulture and silk treatment and production. The museum also explores how Soufli became one of the most important places for the silk industry at the end of the 19th century and up to the 1940s. It is housed in the Kourtides Mansion which was built in 1883.
