Wander the ruins of the ancient Greek colony founded in 628 BCE. Marvel at the sizeable Temple of Hera--reconstructed since the city was abandoned more than 2,000 years ago--and the other four temples surrounding the colony's acropolis.

  • We visited the Park on 10/10/2016, ticket costs € 6 per head (with the same ticket you have the opportunity to visit the cave of Cusa, keep in mind that these close at 14). Possibility of free parking in front of the entrance. The Park is really beautiful and also the temples when one considers the age they possess are magnificent. It is like taking a trip back in time and while walking inside the site is inevitable to think about how to be gorgeous and grandiose in bygone eras. There is an opportunity to take a train to visit the different areas, but we recommend proceeding to walk around, which will make it that much more impressive. Highly recommended if not mandatory if you are in the area.

  • Greek temples and at the same time, a nice walk. A walk on a park with various archaeological sites. Or what's left of after the earthquake still remained. You can go on foot, a 3-hour sure and make sure drinking water with it. You can use small open electric carts out there.

  • be sure to look at. The facility is huge, so either bring good shoes, or take advantage of the shuttle/technologies. The facility is very nice everywhere are bushes made flowers, etc. Look at the sea free!
