Interesting visit to the museum after the walk in the valley. The giant column on display is worth the visit.

The collection here is extraordinary - especially of Greek vases and coins - a gem of a museum - Don't bypass when you see the temples

I visited recently with friends and took the part in the walking tour – It’s a MUST see! Our guide was brilliant with mounds of knowledge. We visited at sunset and got some beautiful photos. Wear appropriate shoes, theres lots of hills/steps/tracks routes to walk
