On Saturday 4 June the Leidse Rederij (in cooperation with Hazenberg Archaeology) launches the new season for the World Heritage Site Limes Vaart, a sailing and walking tour through the canals of Leiden and the Oude Rijn to Park Matilo where the Roman border fort (castellum) Matilo is preserved in the ground. The trip is guided by an archaeologist. 

Two thousand years ago it was busy on and along the Oude Rijn, the northern border (the Limes) of the mighty Roman Empire. It was one of the most important shipping routes for troops and trade in Europe. And you can experience a bit of it! With a Roman specialist on board as your guide, you will depart at 10.00 a.m. in a comfortable sloop for a three-hour trip by boat and on foot.

You go ashore at the former fort Matilo: 2000 years ago, the Roman army guarded the Canal of Corbulo here. Hear how the soldiers lived in this fort, which discoveries archaeologists have made and enjoy the beautiful historical gardens. A tasty snack awaits you at the "Fabrica", where you can sit for a while. (After this relaxing break, the boat continues on the Roman Rhine and you will be back at the Apothekersdijk in Leiden around 1 pm.
