  • Beautiful ancient ruins of Greek temples. Fascinating from an archeological and historical perspective. Lovely site and enjoyable way to pass an afternoon.

  • This is a beautiful and special place. We arrived early to avoid the heat. The benefit was having the entire park virtually to ourselves. The small guide book available at the ticket office is a good value. Being able to wander through the ruins, and walk in the temples, in the quiet of the morning was very special. Don't neglect the residential section to the west.
  • One of my favourite places in the world. Not very known so not super crowded. I've been a couple of times in as many years and I'm always in awe of this place. A good walk around but too big that you are tired by the end of it. Most days seem to be picture perfect here, too. Must recommend!
