Worth the trip from the Amalfi coast. Take a car as the drive is fine. Temples rival anything I have seen from Petra to Karnak.

Wonderful ruins, with three largely intact temples. At night they are well lit. The museum is very good with English description. Each site has a placard with explanations of the temples. A “must see.”
