on a warm day, you walk down into a deep cleft in the valley of the temples into a green paradise of olive, orange and lemon groves, flowers and fruits, all watered from an ancient aqueduct and pool. Magical, quiet place. Few tourists can be...More

I'm not a garden person generally but this was lovely. It's not a formal garden, its a collection of citrus trees, many in flower when we visited, smelling gorgeous. Worth the extra few euros on the temples ticket.

This is a nice spot to visit in conjunction with the temples. Buy your combination ticket ahead of time and save 2 euro. The gardens are lush, signage is tri-lingual and the scent of orange blossoms is wonderful. There are some steep steps entering and...More
