Well worth it if you can get there. We had a private driver who took us to the villa Romana Casale and he suggested this place, we'd never heard of it but are so glad he had local knowledge. Cost 14€ with the villa ticket,...More

DO NOT VISIT HERE unless you bring plenty of water with you. This is a huge site with lots of walking and not a lot of shade. There are a few scattered shady spots but if you intend to see the site, be prepared. This...More

Yes, Morgantina is a large site and it is an excavation in progress and probably not very well funded, as evidenced by the facilities and the signage in need of improvement. We first explored the small hill to the right of the entrance and then...More

The site is very large, the Agora itself takes quite a long time to see. You would be well served to hire a guide or read up a lot before going, information is quite limited but the history is fascinating and very helpful to interpreting...More

The site is nice, but still largely not excavated. Theater is small, but nice. Lots of interesting stuff to see. Signage is quite weathered and there are no materials at the entry, so I suggest you bring your own map and guidebook.

The site where the "Dea di Morgantina" (the statue of the Venus of Morgantina) was found is actually an archeological site still being excavated. The site is about 10KM from Piazza Armerina (Enna) and can be reached by car only. The excavations have discovered that...More

Before you visit it's worth boning up on its history with Wikipedia (just type in Morgantina), because there's sparse information on the site itself. Signposts are rare as well. When you get to the car park you walk downhill and the entrance is on your...More

This should be a star attraction. A huge ruined Greek city on a wonderful hillside site but it is very difficult to interpret and hence appreciate the ruins. The current entrance has been moved together with the car park away from the ruined city centre...More

At a beautiful setting close to Aidone, Morgantina is a surprisingly large old Greek site. The large street plan gives an idea of its sites and the various ruines show details of various types of buildings. Good English explanations.

An unexpected treasure off the beaten track but well worth the journey. Undeveloped site on a hillside so a sturdy pair of shoes is required but the scale and completeness of the site is remarkable. The views of the local area are pretty breathtaking too.

As far as I remember it was open all day from mid morning to 5pm. I am sure if you check with the Tourist Office they can confirm. Good luck
