I went with my dad for the afternoon as part of our holiday. On arrival you have to pay for parking but it’s right next to the entrance. Get you receipt stamped and the way out you can get part of your parking refunded. This isn’t very well explained but work well.

Entry includes a free audio guide in several languages. It was very detailed and guides you through the entire site. The only criticism was at one point it asked you to press the pause but there was no pause button! Each audio guide point had a different number for children, so they’ve clearly developed on suites to the younger ones.

It’s all outdoors and exposed, it was cloudy but warm when we went which was ideal. I would avoid midday sun. Definitely need the 2 hrs but I would say you really need 3. Footpaths are well laid out, but while it’s on a easy enough to walk up if you take your time.

Highly recommended and one of the best historical sites I’ve been to - the audio guide makes it.

A “must not miss” historic site which is extremely interesting and well presented place to visit if you are in the local area.
Amazing setting with a sympathetic and appropriate layout which allows the visitor to appreciate both the Greek and the Roman ruins. A very informative audio guide supports the visit which gives enough information without being too dry and helps to enhance the visit for all visitors.

Amazing place. I’ve visited many ancient sites like this but particularly enjoyed this one because of the layers of history and the way that different periods overlapped and interacted. The audio tour is excellent and held our attention across a huge site. However the single fact which really blew me away was the revelation that this huge site is only a fraction of the expected total settlement and that there is an enormous amount more to go.

Highly recommended

Man alive, you have to come here. Ruins not just of the original Greek settlement but of the Roman one that came after. It’s big enough to be incredibly impressive but not so big to be overwhelming (which can definitely be true with not-so-big kids in somewhere like Pompeii, say). All in all it takes around 2 hours to go round properly and the audio guide (which is included) is genuinely one of the best I’ve heard - informative but not starchy, entertaining but not frivolous. Spot on, in fact. The site is big enough that it doesn’t feel overcrowded at all, which is wonderful. Do avoid eating in the cafe unless you have many hours to kill waiting or are looking for an excuse to avoid doing something later in the day without telling your family.

But that’s mimsy quibbling, quite frankly; this is a fabulous place. Bring a hat, some water and your sense of wonder.
