We propose you to visit and see:

• Thassos of today is a live testimony of the ancient city. Starting the tour from the north, the visitor can admire the walls, which have a length of around 4 km
• The Roman theater, built in a prominent position, after the destruction of the ancient one in the 6th century AD, when the orchestra was transformed into the arena. In the same place at the present are played ancient dramas, under the aegis of Thassos Festival.
