ANCIENT ELIS

ELIS

Ancient Elis, the largest city and capital of the homonymous city-state, was built on the north banks of the Peneus River, between the mountainous part of Elis (Akroreia) and its coastal lowlands (Elis Koile). The site was inhabited almost continuously from the beginning of the Middle Paleolithic (130/120,000) until the end of the Early Byzantine period (seventh century AD), when the city was abandoned. Aetolos Oxylos is considered the city's mythical founder (twelfth-eleventh centuries BC). He allegedly took advantage of the Dorian invasion in order to subordinate the area's early inhabitants and founded the first settlement. The city thrived in the early historical period (eleventh-tenth centuries BC), during the late Archaic and early Classical periods (sixth-fifth centuries BC), and in the Early Roman period (second century BC - early third century AD)……

Ancient Elis is located about 50 km north from the port and about 40 minutes easy driving. About one and a half hour needed to visit the excavations, the theater and the excellent New Archaeological Museum.

A combination of the Ancient Elis, castle Chlemoutsi, lunch in a local restaurant and Kourouta beach could be a perfect tour for those who already been in Olympia before.

Entrance to the Museum costs 2 euro per person, (adults only). The entrance to the Archaeological Site is free.

Working hours: Tuesday-Sunday 08.30-15.00. Mondays closed.
