While there were lots (and I mean lots) of tourists (and newleyweds...what's with these Sicilians...there were more weddings than tourists!) , it is an absolutely amazing site. Bring your sneakers and your water bottle.

This is a very interesting site, and well worth a visit. the site unfortunately is not well maintained with quite a bit of garbage on the grounds but the ruins are still pretty amazing.

Interesting place, there are shuttles, but we decided to walk the entire area and even in the August heat we found it manageable. It is very cheap to enter, and the site is well maintained, and very easy to navigate. Wear comfortable walking shoes and...More

Loved it. It was much quieter than the valley of the temples at Agrigento, and there's just as much to see. Not only do you see the remains of five temples, but there's also the remains of the walled town that housed the estimated 30,000...More

If you are staying anywhere near this archaeological Park in Sicily it is an absolute must experience. We were traveling with two teenage boys, age 17 and 16 and they were fascinated. Entrance to the park is relatively inexpensive but I strongly suggest that you...More

The site is astoundingly beautiful with the huge columns, the temples, the ruins lying across the fields and the views of the water. You can actually walk through the temples, stepping back in time in awe of how they were... More
