  • Evening visit to the Valley of the temples. We took the lead, and absolutely it's worth it: Simona he described with particular enthusiasm history, mythology, events in the Valley, and almost two and a half hour tour flew by! Recommend the round of 18.40: you see the Valley with daylight, dusk, sunset and darkness, in short, all facets of light possible! Not to be missed

  • Pleasant evening experience compatible with high summer temperatures. Good organization of the guides for groups can be booked by phone, even a few hours earlier. Would be to increase the number of parking spaces.

  • To visit the charming we went to the Valley of the temples just after sunset but perhaps the choice was not the best ... I though it was impressive the nocturnal visit admiring the various remains of temples lit but the path the light is quite carente...ci it should shed some light with cellphones to walk and to read the history of each property that you admired. It wouldn't take anything to illuminate some più...la line at ticketteria is quite long with only 2 seats to make tickets not to mention the cash row of parking that is only one, and many people without familiarity takes time to pagare...il parking isn't great and you create also row to enter ... I mean it's a bit too disorganized! ...
