A well worth visit and a great day out if you want some history. Took me right back to the Acropolis in Athens. Make sure you're prepared with comfortable shoes and have a bottle of water on you. I was there in Sept, though the weather had cooled off a little it was still very hot. There was only one cafe outside but not inside and it was closed for some unknown reason. However, really interesting site, and a must-see outside of Greece.

Visiting this site reminded me all I learn in school about Greek mythology... So interesting! Make sure you read about the history and the Greek mythology before you visit this site, so it makes sense to you and you appreciate it more!

This one is the biggest at the VOT but you can walk in and around this huge construction undertaken 2 millinea ago. You have to use a lot of your imagination.

Am glad we saw this in October when weather was much more cooperative and less tiring.
