Stobi, the paradise of archeology

Pompei in Italy is maybe the best archeological site in the world, at least it is what some experts and tourist say. But who is going to visit Macedonia has surely to go to Stobi and there the traveler will find a great place where to see ancient finds quite well conserved.

Something has yet to be brought back to the light. But right now going around the city of Stobi it is possible to see many beautiful mosaics. The city was founded when the area was under Paeonia before to become the former capital of the Roman province of Macedonia Salutaris. The site of Stobi is located near the town of Gradsko.

What to see in Stobi

Inside the site, the best part is the Northern Basilica, realized with marble. There is a baptistry with mosaics created in the V century. The interesting elements discovered in the 50s show that between the North and the Civil Basilicas there were Thermae Minores, a small bath for people who wanted to take care of their bodies. From there the main street of the ancient town of Stobi takes visitors to the other main buildings. For those are visible the basements.

The religion is, of course, the main feature of the buildings visible in Stobi. There are, with access on the main street also the Central Basilica and the synagogue. The second one in the basement of the first one, built in the V century. Walking around, it is possible to take a guided tour for a cheap price, it is good to follow the way suggested. This allows you to explore properly the history of the place. In case the visitor prefers to go around alone there is a good map at the entrance.

There are many inscriptions to be seen on the stones, especially in the former arena. Among the many spectacular elements present in Stobi it has to be mentioned the House of the Palms. It has a big pool and a mosaic floor, beautiful as the fountain located in a small square in the central part of the town. The finds of the various construction can easily help the tourists to understand the dimension of the buildings and the location of the rooms.

I don’t want to go deep in the explanation of the parts of Stobi. There is a work in progress, so in next months and years it can appear something new, that’s why my short description should only inspire you. If you like archeology you should visit the place. Some discovery of the archeologist can be already showed there now while you read the post.

I highly recommend you, my dear readers, to go there because it is also a way to know the daily life of Romans in that area. I like archeology and maybe it is understandable by some of my posts. But I think the wonder in Stobi is for all. In the end, let me write that I am proud of this site because my country (Italy) sent money and experts in the years to recover the finds and create one of the most beautiful archeological sites of the area.

I  just add some pictures taken during my recent trip.

Travel platform with international staff

How do you organize your trips? Maybe for your holidays, you need a travel platform with deals, packages, and tools or staff as support. I like to do many things by myself, as get in touch directly with hotels and airlines. But this is not always the best way to catch the lowest rates. Online you can easily find websites that offer you holiday packages and tailor-made proposals. Also, a lot of them give you flight tickets. I want to tell you about my new experience with the reservation of transport tickets.

I had the chance to find and try a new travel platform. Since I go abroad a lot for business and for leisure, I spend a lot of time to search for great solutions. That’s why I visite Omio. It is designed as a search engine for planes, trains, and buses. But thanks to the connection with Booking, you can use it also to find the accommodation. So the journey and the stay can be reserved together on the website. I had a very good experience in using them. Now, I can add it to the list of the best platform to travel.

It is able to give you all the traveling solution choosing according to your criteria among 800 official partners. This allows you to compare prices and tracks. Plus you can work on connections also with different means of transport: planes, trains, and buses.

Omio is one of the best travel platforms because it is composed by an international staff. They affirm to have people from over 40 countries. I don’t know if this true, but I can say that I can surf the website in my own language. Then I can have assistance in my own language. The staff guarantee support from the booking time to the trip period. Of course, in case of need. So if something happens, I know that I can really talk with someone who speaks Italian, who understand me and who help me.
