I was not too sure what to expect about finding Greek Temples in Italy, but was i amazed. You can walk freely around the site, and even inside the temples! If you are on a roadtrip, this is definitely a place to stop!

We visited the museum after spending 3 hours walking around the archaeological ruins and that is the sequence we would definitely recommend. Walking around the site, you gain a perspective on the different features, locations and buildings that come together very well in the museum...More

The museum is small-medium sized and doesn't take too long to walk around. They have lots of interesting artefacts although there aren't many translations to English on the smaller descriptions as a lot of people have pointed out. Still, it's definitely worth a look.
