The archaeological site of Ancient Messene will have modern visitor services infrastructure by the end of 2025. The Central Archaeological Council has given a unanimous positive opinion on the final architectural studies of the project for the construction of a shop and the configuration of the public service infrastructure at the North and South entrances of the archaeological site, as adapted to the new excavation data.

It is one of the best preserved, maintained and restored archaeological sites, thanks to the ever-memorial Petros Themelis, and is a magnet for thousands of visitors from all over the world. The three completed and restored sites, the Theatre, the Church Hall and the Asclepieion, come alive every summer with the crowds that flock to watch theatrical performances and musical events organised by various organisations.

Ancient Messene and the unspoilt natural environment in which it is located make it a cultural and environmental monument of paramount importance for the economic and cultural development not only of Messinia, but also of the wider region of the Peloponnese.
