  • Beautiful place! We have spent 5 hours there. Stunning place!! It made our trip to Sicily worth visiting the island. Got there on the train from Palermo ( very easy and cheap, but remember to take your passport ).
  • Unbelievably extensive Greek temple ruins. Be prepared to walk a bunch. Not to be missed, tho. A Sicily must-see. There is a great museum that is part of the complex. There is a fee, but the museum is worth your time.
