The hype around the Valley of the Temples did not disappoint. We attended at dusk and took amazing sunset pictures. Parking is some distance from the ruin so give yourself time to make it back to your car before it is too dark.

Few things: - we walked everywhere and it is easily doable, though if you dont fancy walking in the heat then get one of those electric bikes. - we also didnt get a guide and was easily manageable with a guide book - for us the perfect timing is 1h before sunset: you stroll, you take pictures and at the...

An ancient Greek and Roman colony hidden in the center of Sicily, a treasure made up of the most ancient temples in the best conditions ever. Impossible to find anything similar also in Greece. There are audio guide, English guides, it is always open, the ticket is not expensive, staff speaks English.It looks to have a nice walk back in... More

Walk in the shadows of history at the Valle dei Templi. Truly a magical experience. Provides a wonderful history of Sicily's significance in World History and the development of modern society.

I visited here with 2 friends and had a fantastic day. It was scorching hot so, if you go on a day like that take plenty of water! It was a really interesting walk through history and I kept thinking how much my grandchildren would enjoy it. Well worth the visit and do try the granites.

We visited in January when it was quiet and there was already a carpet of spring flowers. The Valley gives you a good idea of what a Greek city was like and the visiting the temple of Concord is an unforgettable experience; well worth the visit.

If you like Archeology or History you will love the Valley of the Temples. An immense expanse of Temples, statues, walkways and necropis. Easy to miss the underground burial chambers. We stumbled on them accidentally and were fascinated by them. Unfortunately, the museum was closed when we were there. This was well worth the 10E admission. Bring a picnic and... More

This is a must visit site in Sicily. I've been to other similar ancient ruins in Greece, Turkey and Italy, but the valley of the temples in Agrigento is one of the best preserved ancient ancient Greek towns, which left unforgettable memories in my mind. We visited it at the end of October, when the weather was still nice (sunny... More

My family visited this archaeological treasure in late December. The ruins and the surrounding natural beauty are stunning. Best of all, there are no crowds and no lines (compare that with a visit to Rome!). Park at the bottom and walk up through the grounds, leaving time for the incredible temple. Kids and teens will enjoy the anatomically correct fallen... More
