Valle Dei Templi - Review

A splendid example of the Greater Greece architecture, Valle deiTempli stands proudly as a national monument of Italy. The gem of Sicily, the site has been excavated and restored to unravel seven temples, namely Tempiodella Concordia, Tempio di Giunone, Tempio di Ercole, Tempiodei Dioscuri, Tempio di GioveOlimpico, Tempio di Vulcano o Efesto and the Temple of Asclepius. This UNESCO World Heritage site claims to have the most well preserved temple, the Tempiodella Concordia and the largest Doric temple, Tempio di GioveOlimpico. The latter unfortunately, could never be completed and now lies in ruins. But it is definite treasure, especially considering how old these temples are.Housing over 5000 exhibits is the Museo ArcheologicoRegionale di Agrigento. Near the Valle deiTempli, it lies in the midst of a great excavated area, which include the ruins of an amphitheater. It tells the beautiful story of the city, its origins, history and development. Statues and coins to the most spectacular vases and excavated items, the museum is captivating. While here, you can also visit the Chiesa San Nicola.In the heart of the Valley of Temples lies a lush green garden, the Il GiardinodellaKolymbetra. Almond and olive trees line across the banks of the river and the splendor of pomegranates, banana and mulberry trees is overwhelming. When you’re strolling through the garden, don’t be surprised if you think you have stepped into a different time.

Valle Dei Templi, Agrigento Reviews

  • Really a nice place if you like history. Done a good job on making it a place to have some shade because it is a lot of walking. We spent 6 hours and thoroughly enjoyed it. Sicily has so much history and if you have a guide or one of your party do the reading,really helps to visualize what you looking for. There is several nice cafes for lunch during the walk,

  • What an stunning site! Athens may have a great story but this site is it! Highly recommend it at sunset & night . You'll have the best views and will avoid the heat and crowds. Is truly a delight to walk through these perfectly constructed and preserved structures. Unfortunately, just like most places in Italy n the sites are not maintain clean & organized but most importantly well protected. Most tourist get to climb everywhere specially in the less complete infrastructures. None the less, very happy to have been able to experience this just few hundred feet away from our hotel.

  • This is the biggest temple complex in Sicily. As a major tourist site it can get pretty busy in summer and there can be long queues to get in. I advise taking the taxi from the bottom parking to the top ticket office then walking back down. There are a bunch of temples dedicated to different god's, but the design is pretty standard, in various states of reconstruction. Great views over the valley to the sea. Allow at least 3 hours to see it all.

  • Amazing for what it was, but what it is, is a pile of rocks and reconstructions! Something just didn't connect with me, despite it clearly being of amazing historical importance. The site is massive and great to wander around.

  • The valley of temple was nice with its several ancient Greek temples. The landscape was amzing, picture wise it is great and there and lots of guided tours if wanted in lots of languages. The only thing Is the lack of toilets around the site and a bit crowded at some times of the day.
