Be prepared to spend several hours walking around the various temples and reading the signage. It was very well maintained, and when we visited, only slightly crowded (must have been a school field trip or two..) gorgeous night lighting from up on the hill.

The Valley of the Temples came alive for us because of our guide Sergio. He was extremely knowledgeable, had great humour and was so incredibly fluent with every aspect of the Greek ruins. To really appreciate the site, you must have a guide like Sergio...More

The ruins are mind blowing. It's great to see the temples all in different stages of restoration/decay so you can understand both the age of ruins but also how they would've been in their time. It would benefit from more information when you arrived such...More

2500 years ago and more, and all within a leasurely walk. Start with the Temple of Juno on the top and make your way down.. The Bistro half way is worth a stop too, good views on the Temples across fig trees.
