  • One of my favourite places in the world. Not very known so not super crowded. I've been a couple of times in as many years and I'm always in awe of this place. A good walk around but too big that you are tired by the end of it. Most days seem to be picture perfect here, too. Must recommend!
  • 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.
