You can see most of the major sites in about 3 days - but it all depends on how much time you want to spend at each. If you are in India, the IAS produce a good guide to the sites that's well worth buying in advance so you can plan your visit.
Let someone drive you around though - it's hot and things are quite spread out. Also after the first couple of days, you may not be so keen to see EVERYTHING as the better sites can 'spoil' you for some of the less significant ones.

That might be the ASI - the Archaeological Survey of India - rather than the IAS (the Indian Administrative Survey), I think. The ASI do have a very basic web page on Hampi here:
... and that's another site that needs to be dredged up out of my bucket list and visited soon!

That's right Madhulika - I had all the right letters in all the wrong order!

Not a problem, koshkha. The Indian government's love for acronyms can befuddle even us Indians at times!
