Perhaps a guide is a good idea. Large but hilly site in rather poor condition. When we were there a ?school meeting filled the old theater area.

Spent a couple of hours with a guide at this site. Plenty of boards describing areas so not so much need for a guide. There is a church and museum on site, both of which are worth looking at. Around 1000 exhibits in the museum.

Well organized and informative signage, fantastically laid out museum. Truly an amazing experience for a history or archeology buff, even on a very hot day.
