Full description
Your tour begins with a visit to the National Archeological Museum of Metaponto, where you will discover the history of the city. From there you will visit the Archeological Park of Apollonio Licio with its urban sanctuary which is part of both the Agorà and the main North-South Axis (Plateia).

Following that you will move to the Tavole Palatine, the Doric temple built by Acheans in 630 B.C. The temple was also called the “school of Phytagoras”, in memory of both the great philosopher and his school.
 
Your tour will later end with the archeological site of Pantanello. This area has acquired a great anthropological value after an excavation campaign carried out by the University of Texas in 1974. During the archeological excavations, an incredible variety of remains were found in a state of exceptional conservation.
