About Valle Dei Templi, Agrigento

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.

  • An amazing tourist site, the condition of the temples is superb. A bit of a walk to the top temple, but good views and interesting information along the way. There is parking at the base that costs 2 euros. Inside the site there are two restaurants, one of which is somewhat fancier. If you are staying at the Hotel Villa Athena then you can use a private entrance if you pay cash for your ticket.

  • Nice place especially when you know where to park, I suggest to look at the map upfront, otherwise you'll spend some time driving around, trying to figure out what to do and finally park at the wrong place :) that's what happened to me. This place is simple when you know it. The valley itself is amazing of course!

  • A must visit for anyone interested in Greek architecture/history. Easy access from Agrigento train station by buses which are available right outside. Best way to explore is to take a taxi to the too, Temple of Zeus, and then start walking down hill and finish right back at the ticketing counter.

  • A magnificent historical spot with lots of Hellenistic-Roman monuments! Truly impressive even on a Global scale - not many so well-preserved sites are seen nowadays! The Valley of the Temples is stretched on a large area, so make sure you spare enough time for your visit, but also pick the right temperatures/season! It is rocky and there are not many shaded zones, so pick comfy shoes and sufficient water supplies :).

  • Beautiful and very historical. It looks like you are in a mythical Greek era. It's almost like you expect Hercules and Sampson to appear and all the mythical gods. Wear very comfortable shoes because there is so much walking. Such a beautiful trip, you will remember this one forever
