It's a beautiful and unique place. Expect the crowds and consider timing of visit if you want to escape them. Sunset is lovely, especially from the theatre (the ruins). Closes at 8pm so you have plenty of time to work your way down as it gets dark and the path is well lit.
Very unique and definitely worth a visit if you have the chance. It is possible to swim in some of them if interested. Once you reach the top you can continue to walk around the Roman ruins in the area before heading back down. You need to remove your shoes and walk barefoot on the limestone so its better to bring a bag to put the shoes.
