This temple is one of three grand, ancient temples. The three incredible temple ruins are surrounded by ancient Greek, Etruscan and Roman residence ruins. Plan on at least three hours for the outdoor ruins. This one was apparently mis-named as a temple to Neptune, it...More

The experience of seeing these temples cannot be described in words. you have to see for yourself. Apart from Angkor Wat, this is the best site we ever saw. hard to believe that this was build 2500 years ago.

This is a wonderful site to explore. Yes, there are tour buses but it is easy to wait until they have left an area and be there almost alone. Parking is just by the site if you have a car, or it is a stroll...More

A great site, very clean and plenty to look at. Not crowded and parking is just across the road. Took lots of photos here and very few people to spoil the photo unlike rome.

No. We went in the middle of May and there was no queue. A lot of agencies charge a lot to 'skip the line.' It is a waste of money. Wear good shoes, take water and see some of the best things that you will ever see.
