Full description

Come to Agrigento and discover one of Sicily's most famous historical attractions, for its well-preserved Doric temples dedicated to Greek divinities, the famous Valley of the Temples. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this Archaeological Park is located on a plateau close to the Strait of Sicily. 

Follow your guide to explore this site where time seems to stand still, preserving an unprecedented historical charm. Start the tour from the temple of Hera, continuing on the sacred way to the remains of the surrounding wall.

Inside the Valley, see 12 temples as well as some fortifications, the Lower and Upper Agora, an Olympian, and a Bouleuterion. Source of inspiration for poets, philosophers, and painters, it is one of the most emblematic parks in Sicily.

Admire Doric temples from the Hellenic period, that correspond to the ancient Akragas, the original monumental nucleus of the city of Agrigento. Move onward to the Temple of Concord, the remains of the early Christian Necropolis, the Temple of Heracles, and the remains of the Temple of Zeus.

Liz explained not only the history of the temple, but the history of the city and the isle and shared some Sicilian's tradition with the group as well. Not only was it extremely interesting and clear, it was fun. Clearly our experience here was improved by her!

Original guide was sick but replacement very nice. Had some trouble understanding everything she said but got most of her meaning. Directions said the tour ended where it started but that was not true. We had trouble locating the Guinuone parking lot (beginning of the tour) so we parked at the exit parking lot--Porto V. Turned out that was the right thing to do. As one of the guards told us, all tours end there. You may want to revise your instructions and add a map.
