I like legendary sites, but this long, straight passageway to a room at the end is hardly breathtaking. You can get in, and you can walk it to the end. It is a small part of the overall site, which is worth visiting and has...More

You can LOOK down the long corridor but you cannot venture in any longer. Walk around the side and there are some other interesting vantage points, however.

I went in August 2013 but the place is so hauntingly beautiful that I can't help thinking about this place and the views from the top of the Temple of Apollo. The vista is steeped in ancient history. This review is from that visit -...More
