  • Site in very poor condition, most of the temples are fallen rocks on the ground, draft of best managed Valle dei Templi, who manages this area is bad Italian tourists than the southern regions. A shame for Italy and for the Sicilian hospitality. Much better to visit the Valley of the temples or Segesta.
