My husband And I just returned from temples with my seven year old in tow. The walk up the the biggest temple was challenging for my son but I believe it is the age. Very fun and education. Interesting to say the least. The drive there was full of detours so the two hour drive turned into three. Cute little... More

Agrigento is a lovely Sicilian city with the added bonus of the Valley of the Temples. The zona is a lovely place to visit. Bring lunch or a snack and enjoy the views. Do a bit of research ahead of time as the temples are so much more enjoyable if you know a bit more than just the basics. The... More

I went to this site from Erice on my way to Ragusa. This was quite an incredible find for me since the site itself is quite big and I wish that I had more time to see it all. The setting of the place is quite interesting since it is across a neighborhood of rather modern buildings, which gives a... More

Valley of the Temples is an amazing place to visit, so much history and the preservation is wonderful. The guides and informative plaques give you a great overview, though I do recommend a bit of light reading to give yourself a heads up prior to going. You will appreciate the site(s) much more.

The temples were much more interesting than I expected. My sister in law liked better than Athens. We used one of the guides that are at the entrance. Really worth the extra cost to get more history of what we were seeing.

Incredible! Well designed - great sense of history and really beautiful with the olive trees and the cherry blossom just coming out. Bet it's crowded and VERY hot in the summer months, but perfect in Febrt!

Stay away on a rainy day! We arrived from Verdura Resort in less than an hour and had no desire to walk around for 2-3 hours and get wet. This is something one MUST avoid when the elements are not favorable.

Worth every penny of the 10 euro entrance fee. February was great warm weather, with very few other tourists. The temples are wonderful, and they have an abundance of descriptive signs in both Italian and English. (I do wish there were more of an emphasis on the history rather than a detail of the construction, but I'm just grateful they... More

The guide books do not do justice to this magnificent historical site. The temples and ruins are amazing. If possible get dropped off at the top and make your way down. Plan on two hours. Bring a hat if it is sunny.

It's a nice tour… but don't go during hot summer days. Choose times when it is not too warm, because there are no such places to rest. Bring your water and enjoy your back to the past, with one of the most well preserved Greek ruins… the architecture is impressive!
