Locations

Visit ancient shipwrecks in Greece and Italy a must for scuba divers and history lovers

We have chosen for you four destinations, where significant shipwrecks from the classical period are located. Easy to reach, enjoyable by scuba divers, free divers, snorkelers and simple sea lovers. They offer uncontaminated environments and excellent accommodation solutions. This is the best choice for your holidays!

 

Alonissos island | Greece

Alonissos island, a stopover on the sea routes from Northern to Southern Aegean since the 9th century BC, is one of the  most remote islands of the Sporades complex. Its unharmed beauty, its watercolor-like landscapes and crystal waters, protected by the Alonissos National Marine Park, provide unmissable opportunities to get away and dive into the boundless blue of the Aegean Sea.

 

Methoni | Greece

Methoni, a small fishing and farming town, is a quiet resort on a cape south of Pylos-Navarino and its renowned, enchanting bay. This peaceful place delighted its visitors ever since: it was one of the seven towns Agamemnon offered to Achilles to appease his anger during the Troy siege.  This village’s atmosphere is still inebriating, with long beaches backed by olive groves and vineyards, and the famous Venetian fortress.

 

San Pietro in Bevagna | Italy

The small town of San Pietro in Bevagna, located in the Salento peninsula, was a mandatory stopover in the Otranto-Leuca-Taranto sea route, and the archaeological remains well testify the trade activities that took place in this area.

Today, San Pietro is a renowned summer destination, with its golden beaches, crystal-clear seawater and shallow sea beds, ideal for children and swimming beginners, close to the well-known ‘Porto Cesareo’ Marine Protected Area.

 

Crotone | Italy

Crotone is located on the Ionian shore of the region that the Romans called Lucania and Bruttii. Founded by the Achaeans (Greek settlers) in the 8th century B.C., Crotone was one of the most important centres of Magna Graecia due to its strategic position on the Ionian Sea. Its charm crossed the centuries and made this city a jewel of nature and history in the Mediterranean basin.

Scuba Diving

 

While diving one needs to keep in mind that every site is different from the other. Thus all diving instructors are highly trained professionals who know the diving areas.  It is highly important to know about diving equipment. The first thing you need is a dive mask which allows you to see under the water by creating an air space in front of your eyes. Additionally you need diving fins, snorkels, a scuba unit and an exposure protection.
