Fantastic history of this region of Italy, which formed part of Magna Grecia in the distant past.
The site is spread over a large area, with a small museum.

First a warning, the Museum, Archeological Park, and the Temple of Hera are difficult to find in three different poorly marked locations. But it is WORTH the effort! The Museum is full of Vases, terra Cotta pieces and artifacts of the Greeks. The Archeological Park...More
We went to the area planning on going to the museum and visiting the ruins. After a hard search, we found the museum. We were glad we did. Although there are no explanations in English, a staff member who spoke some English, immediately came up...More

The museum was wonderful. There were not any tour guides. The signage and directions were not helpful. We had 2 GPS's and almost gave up. It was worth the struggle. In the parking area there are no guards, no employees, and no other people. My wife and I were overwhelmed and glad we took the time to find it. High Drama and the more you can learn beforehand the better. Throughout Southern Italy are the best preserved masterpieces of the Hellenistic Era, and no crowds.
