Alexandroupolis - Archaeological Site of Mesimvria - Zone Archaeological Site of Mesimvria - Zone
Ancient Zoni is one of the most important archaeological sites of the Evros area. There has been the most important colony of ancient Samothrace, even more important than Mesimvria, as previously thought. The physical location and boundaries of the walls determined the final layout of the city. There are many houses that are preserved to today and are arranged around a central courtyard. Many everyday utensils were also discovered. The city's identity was defined by a multitude of coins bearing the inscription bands. The Temple of Apollo is the only archaic temple of Apollo in the whole region of Thrace. The site is open every day 08: 00-15: 00.
How to get there: The archaeological site of Zoni is located in Evros, region 20 km (12.5 miles), West of Alexandroupolis. It is accessible from the Egnatia motorway exiting at the intersection of Makri.
