Valle dei Templi Reviews
Sito stupendo vale la pena visitarlo, lascia senza fiato vedere strutture di secoli fa che nonostante le intemperie sono ancora lì al contrario di strutture moderne!!! more »Wonderful site worth visiting, leaves breathless to see structures from centuries ago that despite the weather are still there as opposed to modern facilities!!!
Beautyful all the day, awesome in the sunset. There is a big car park near the ticket office, the price Is affordable. After security check you will walk through the history more »
A splendour. Prepare your arrival: favour the visit at the end of the afternoon (count at least 2h30 to do the whole site) in addition to not suffering from the heat you discover the magical atmosphere that emerges at the last light of the day. A real jewel
Valley is amazing!! We are stoned with architecture and pieces left of temples. I thin that we could spend whole day in looking at these awesome structures with century’s long history. Pictures will tell more then any words but if you are going in south Sicily, don’t miss this history place!
