    Wonderful time, you avoid the dog days and columns acquire that particular light. Totally unattended and yet in apparent good order. Well, we have way too many in Italy x our forces. 30 minutes + that enough, you see the temple and reads all the above

    Archaeological site of great beauty and free: we visited in complete solitude and we greatly appreciated: perhaps a greater advertising and a better contextualization would benefit.

    Twilight city definitely impressive. The remains of the temple are really well preserved. We are appalled to see that the site is free and unattended. However, all risks are taken completely out of context if you don't visit the nearby archaeological museum. Overall worth a visit.

  • Probably the most visually impressive of the ruins in the area. Very casual attitude to access which is quite refreshing. Almost as if "we got this bunch of rocks out the back if you want to have a look". If you are into Greek History check it out.
  • A pice of ancient history in the middle of nowhere. Always worth to visit!
  • I was so lucky to assist at a theater performance where the temple was the scene under many stars in a clear sky. Also deities appreciated.
  • Worth a stop to look at the ruins and take some pics. Free parking and entry.
  • The Temple of Hera (Tavole Palatine) is a fascinating tourist attraction, but unfortunately often ignored even by those who, like me, live relatively close. The monument is easily identifiable and freely accessible, the site is well maintained (although there are no facilities) and there are also clear explanatory panels. Admire this temple is truly stepping back in time.
