Despite the name this remarkable collection of intriguing architectural heritage is on a Ridge not in a Valley!! A convenient taxi service avoids a return walk along the ridge whichever end you park. Everything from an almost complete temple to a wine press is here...More

The over 2,000-year-old temple ruins are reflective of a once great empire and world leading society. Best to either read up in advance on the various temples or take a guided tour, to understand the history and significance of the various temples. The ground is...More

Walk through time at The Valley of the Temples. An awe to see. We spent a couple of hours enjoying the ruins. Don’t pay a taxi. Enjoy a slow stroll around the grounds. Well worth the $ & time.

In Sicily, there are more Greek ruins than in Greece, so make the drive across the island to the modern-day coastal town of Agrigento, then head to the hills above to explore an entire landscape of temples and connecting roads.

I'm sorry I didn't see this until now. We didn't stay in the area. We had a driver from Palermo to Siracusa and stopped to spend the day.
