  • A MUST see!!! Incredible history and ruins. Don't miss the museum. A guide makes it even more incredible. Better than the Greece ones. Hard to believe it was just over 50years ago that you could...

  • Love this place lot's of ancient things to see went today on a guided tour with group and we all enjoyed it. They got lots of Greek ancient artifacts which I think is well preserved . Just make sure you put some sunscreen before going as it's an open area. Take your cap and sunglasses as well. We also visited the museum nearby and overall it was an amazing travel. It's one of the most amazing sites for me for my trip. Try visiting them and hope you'll like it as well.
  • Worth visiting, the site is beautiful. We went mid June around lunch time, it was hot but luckily not that busy, there is no shade so plenty sunscreen and a hat will help. We got tickets at the door, seems like on their website there are discounted tickets, but they said it must be wrong, the cost is more. Maybe there is a different price for tourists, who knows. Although the architecture was humbling, the grass could have been kept neater. Overall definitely worth the visiting together with the museum at the end.
