After wandering around the area that covers around 10 ha and amazed at the excellent condition of the Ancient Greek buildings, we enjoyed a top lunch in the restaurant actually on the grounds of the Park. We were there in April 2016

The temples here are fantastic. Best Greek temples outside of Greece. Very large site. To see it all take a picnic lunch. Don't forget to visit the museum afterwards

A great morning spent at the archaeological site. This is well worth a visit and, in our opinion, is much more interesting than Pompeii.

This temple is one of three well preserved temples on the archeological site. It is magnificent to behold and the scale is daunting. In it's hay day 2,600 years ago it must have been astounding.
