We booked the tickets online and then again on Line we set the day and time: very simple! The outside staff very kind, coordinated the queue and the distances. In the afternoon I recommend entering at the latest at 5:30 pm as the museum closes at 7:30 pm and since it is very large it takes about two hours at least! Beautiful sunset that colors the times: fantastic!
Very good conserved tempels.
