What to expect

The Valley of the Temples is an archaeological site in Agrigento (ancient Greek Akragas), Sicily. It is one of the most outstanding examples of Greater Greece art and architecture and is one of the main attractions of Sicily as well as a national monument of Italy. The area was included in the UNESCO Heritage Site list in 1997.

Through this tour, you will have the chance to admire the magnificent Doric temples of the sacred hill, as the Temple of Hera (Juno), the Temple of Concordia, Temple of Herakles (Hercules), the Temple of Zeus (Jupiter) and Sanctuary of chthonic deities.

Follow the steps and the words of your expert guide and you will also understand the culture that led to the construction of those majestic structures and you will get to know the characters that made Akragas 'the most beautiful city of mortals'.

After the Vally of the Temples, your guide will take you to visit the unmissable Garden of the Kolymbetra: a fascinating colorful place, celebrated by writers and poets from ancient times and often compared to the 'garden of Eden'. The Kolymbetra also represents the most illustrious example of Sicilian arboriculture, namely citrus cultivation.
