This region is one of the most important archeological sites in the world with many great temples such as Hera (Juno,) Lacinia, Concordia, Heracles (Hercules) and Olympian Zeus (Jupiter,) all dramatically perched along a long rocky scarp.
Easy to follow route to look at the Greek and Roman ruins of temples and other structures. It's a popular venue and some sites were quite crowded. There are explanations in English at every site. So, we did not see a need for a guide....More
