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!

The photo of the amphitheater at this site really is misleading. The site itself is pretty small and not extensively restored. So unless you are an archeological pro, it is hard to appreciate. And the explanations are minimal. I think everything of interest has been...More

After the nearby roman villa. this was such a disappointment. The entrance fee should be 6 Euro but the staff pushed us to spend 10 implying the museum was on site. It is not. We tried to go to the Museum in Aidone but could...More

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

Well worth it if you can get there. We had a private driver who took us to the villa Romana Casale and he suggested this place, we'd never heard of it but are so glad he had local knowledge. Cost 14€ with the villa ticket,...More

DO NOT VISIT HERE unless you bring plenty of water with you. This is a huge site with lots of walking and not a lot of shade. There are a few scattered shady spots but if you intend to see the site, be prepared. This...More

Yes, Morgantina is a large site and it is an excavation in progress and probably not very well funded, as evidenced by the facilities and the signage in need of improvement. We first explored the small hill to the right of the entrance and then...More

The site is very large, the Agora itself takes quite a long time to see. You would be well served to hire a guide or read up a lot before going, information is quite limited but the history is fascinating and very helpful to interpreting...More

The site is nice, but still largely not excavated. Theater is small, but nice. Lots of interesting stuff to see. Signage is quite weathered and there are no materials at the entry, so I suggest you bring your own map and guidebook.

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
