  • 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.

  • Worth visiting. The Park is gorgeous. An immersion in the ancient history of Sicily. Breathtaking view. Crystal blue sea. Also many delicacies to eat. In particular, black bread and olive oil Nocellara del Belice. A paradise!
