Absolutely beautiful place, don’t miss it. I went for sunset— it was so quiet and the light really added to the magic of the sights.

We were on a Gate 1 tour and really enjoyed this site. The day was beautiful with the temperature in the low 80's. There is a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes and drink plenty of water.

Without seeing this site, your travel to sicily is not complete. This world heritage site is a little far from of city. Do not miss the archeological museum which is located near the main entrance. You need minimum 3 hours for visiting this site.

November was great weather and absolutely no crowds. We had beautiful clear skies and the archeological site nearly to ourselves. Beautiful history and I'd highly recommend a guide or all you are looking at is some old pillars. You need the history behind it all....More
