Dimini Archaeological Site
The site of Dimini, located approximately 15km from Volos, is a unique site that has provided the most complete picture of a Neolithic settlement. The site was initially known for the remains of a Neolithic settlement on top of a hill there. Pottery found at the site dated from the Late Neolithic period.
After many years of continuous work and excavations, a very important Mycenaean settlement was discovered, and was later identified as ancient Iolkos, the city of Jason. The excavation of the Mycenaean settlement began in 1980 by V.Adrymi-Sismani, and is still being carried out today.
Some of the highlights of this site include the well-organized Late Neolithic settlement, the Mycenaean tomb, attributed to the Kings of the Mycenaean settlement, and many other unique and interesting finds.
The Dimini Archaeological site is open daily from Tuesday to Sunday, but is closed on Mondays. Please call ( +30 ) 24210 85690 for further information if you are planning to visit the Dimini Archaeological site.
