  • A must-do visit of breathtaking beauty! We have been twice because the ticket is valid for three days. The second time next to the Tempi we booked and did Yoga with Luciano who welcomed and pampered us just like this land of Cilento where everything is beautiful and full of charm. We booked the tickets online and then again on Line we set the day and time: very simple! The outside staff very kind, coordinated the queue and the distances. In the afternoon I recommend entering at the latest at 5:30 pm as the museum closes at 7:30 pm and since it is very large it takes about two hours at least! Beautiful sunset that colors the times: fantastic!
  • Very good conserved tempels.
