This site is fascinating and stretches a couple of kilometres across a couple of small valleys. You should visit the Museo in Aidone first to get an idea of the site plan (no map at the site). Prepare to spend 1-2 hours there.Take your own...More

I agree with the reviewer who said this site was a disappointment. It is now horribly overgrown with the signage completely faded and no maps available at the kiosk. One’s understanding of the site is grossly impaired by this neglect. UNESCO please take note!

This is the site of a city founded by the Greeks around the 3rd century B.C., taken over by the Romans, and eventually abandoned around 25 A.D. It covers a large area in the rolling hills of Morgantina. The theater, public place for citizens, fountain...More

We visited Morgantina after we visited the Archaelogical Museum in Aidone and maybe we had too high an expectation. The road to the excavation sites was over the top and the upper site a bit disappointing. The lower site had a lot of work done...More

As far as I remember it was open all day from mid morning to 5pm. I am sure if you check with the Tourist Office they can confirm. Good luck
