We visited the Valley of the temples on a warm September day. I strongly recommend that you go when the weather is cooler. Understanding where to park and how to get to the entry is confusing. Signage is not the best - UNDERSTATEMENT! We parked...More

We didn’t join an organised tour but went early and used the audio commentary as we walked around the entire site. That proved to be a fantastic way of seeing the whole place and the audio was just great. We noticed that lots of the...More

As a passionate greek and roman culture lover, the valley was one of my biggest highlights of my trip to sicily. Do not miss these temples! Stunning, beautiful and unique. A must see place in Sicily

A couple of hours here is plenty. Lots of great history and spectacular setting over the valley, but there are plenty of temples around the world Hope the entrance fee pays for more archeologists to do their work here as otherwise not value.

What a treat to be able to walk among the gods! Go early as there are lots of groups and it gets very hot as you are outside! But it's worth it. Absolutely breathtaking views!

A lovely day exploring these temples and ancient monuments with a wonderful guide. But, what on earth is the modern art video screen entitled ecstasy doing next to the Concordia temple.

We personally needed 5h. I think 3h is minimum, if you are fast. It's better to start earlier than at 6.30pm

There is a programme of modern artworks which recreate some of the atmosphere of the original, now lost.
