  • We had heard, was a must of our vacation and we were not disappointed! Visit "off season" has enabled us to enjoy them in full beauty.

  • A very nice place. It works, but it's worth the detour. The temples are very well preserved. A must see.

  • Very pleasant walk among the temples. Classic stage of Sicily but don't miss it. The conservation status is very good

  • This is an amazing place. You need a good few hours to walk around and some decent shoes - it killed both our pairs of walking sandals! It is well worth it though. The best option is to walk the film route but for €3 you can get a bus one way. There is a cafe on site. Confusingly you pay for the food first then give your ticket to the ladies who heat it up for you.
  • Great historical site. Good amount to see. Best with a tour guide to provide extra information.
  • Nice place to stay. Entrance Fee is 10€ per person. Parking costs extra but there are some places around the parking area which are free
  • The most impressive there is of course the temple of Concordia, as the best preserved one. The only this spot is enough to get there without any doubt. Be prepared however to walk and walk and walk, three hours of walking at least.
  • If you're a tourist visiting Sicily then I will highly recommend this place...you ll feel like you re in the ancient days when you get I just loved it😍
