PAVLOPETRI, GREECE

Don your mask and snorkel to view the shallow foundations of one of the world’s oldest-known submerged cities (dating back 5,000 years) in Greece. Scientists estimate that the city was sunk in around 1000 BC due to earthquakes that shifted the land. Despite this and even after 5,000 years, the arrangement of the city is still clearly visible and at least 15 buildings have been found. Historians believe that the ancient city had been a centre for commerce for the Minoan Civilization and the Mycenaean civilization

Once you are finished underwater you can then investigate the land-based ruins, as well.
