It is a long bus ride from Taormina but well worth it. Since Sicily is steeped in culture, these ancient ruins are testimony to my heritage from long ago. The ruins are awesome to see and the guide was very knowledgeable, using books to help...More

This area of temples near Agrigento is astonishing! The view of the sea and the greek ancient atmosphere are unique especially at sunset and night when all temples are enlightened do not trust the unofficial ticket sellers outside the archeological site!

We toured the Valle dei Templi with a wonderful guide named Lorenzo Capraro, of Agrigento Experience. He was knowledgeable and gregarious and made our visit more memorable.

We visited the Valley of the Temples and essentially spent four hours wandering the area. I would recommend getting the audio tour it helps understand what you are looking at. Most of the Temples are in ruins with only Concordia essentially complete as it was...More

Oh, my gosh! Seven Greek temples in various phases of restoration....with very few tourists to worry about, in a lovely setting....in Sicily! If that's not enough, you shouldn't have come! To have an archeologist serve as our tour guide made the event even more impactful....More
