There are two entrances to visit the Temples with ample parking but make sure you read the signs as we discovered a whole row of cars had been booked even though it looked legal. All historic sites have parking police to monitor these areas regularly However, it is in a magnificent setting and just trying to visualise the civilisation is... More

Took train from Palermo to Agrigento in to morning at around 10 AM and arrived at 11:30 +:-. Took shuttle bus from train station to site. Kind of helter skelter in that they do not have maps for reference or guides. But the ruins are magnificent . We spent 2.5 hrs and covered all the ruins. Did not go to... More

My wife and I just want to say again how much we enjoyed your tour of the Valley of the Temples and Archeological Museum. Your method of explanation and teaching (almost Socratic in form) was wonderful and interesting. I think you are a natural teacher. Maybe you should set your sights on academics and the University? Best wishes and, again,... More

This archeological park is broken into 2 sections and is quite expansive. We only had time for 1. It was easy to walk around but there can be lots of tourists.

Temples abound: Juno from 464 BC earlier than the Parthenon. Concord from 435 BC. The best preserved Doric temple in the world. Ercole from 500+ BC. Zeus from 480 BC. Different design with some half capitals. This site was awe inspiring and fun to walk through for a couple of hours. If this review is helpful then please indicate so... More

Don't go in summer as you will drip with sweat and be unable to linger and ponder on the sheer wonder of the ruins and the labour involved in creating these wonderful temples. Go instead in February when the almond blossoms are fragrant with flowers and you can appreciate not only the architectural splendour but also the stunning views of... More

My husband And I just returned from temples with my seven year old in tow. The walk up the the biggest temple was challenging for my son but I believe it is the age. Very fun and education. Interesting to say the least. The drive there was full of detours so the two hour drive turned into three. Cute little... More

Agrigento is a lovely Sicilian city with the added bonus of the Valley of the Temples. The zona is a lovely place to visit. Bring lunch or a snack and enjoy the views. Do a bit of research ahead of time as the temples are so much more enjoyable if you know a bit more than just the basics. The... More

I went to this site from Erice on my way to Ragusa. This was quite an incredible find for me since the site itself is quite big and I wish that I had more time to see it all. The setting of the place is quite interesting since it is across a neighborhood of rather modern buildings, which gives a... More
