There's not a lot else to see in Agrigento, but this lovely walk is well worth the trip. If you can, be sure to walk from the starting point but bring water if it's in the summer!

Greek, Roman, Asians... they all lived there at one point. Great place to visit. I would hate to be there in the summer as it would be really hot and dry, but April was great!

Staying within walking distance, visiting on a quiet Sunday and with cool but sunny weather we had a simply fantastic few hours exploring this amazing place. The "Valley of Temples" site is huge, good walking shoes, a hat, water and time are required. Visiting on a Sunday in April, crowds were not an issue. Stay in old Agrigento, it is... More

Overdose here on your Greek temples. Pace yourself for the 2km stretch of temple ruin after temple. It is possible to get a little bus to one end and then walk back. Try and go early or late afternoon. There is a cafe there not cheap but not too expensive . Parking is close by costs a few euros.

So much to see here, lots of walking but worth it for the temples that your get to see. Can be a bit windy at the top part of the temples and not the best signposted of places if you are driving.

510 BC Temple of Concordia. Spectacular, Greek (8) temples and ruins on the hillside overlooking the Mediterranean. Ancient city of Akragas. Best location possible, worth the drive and nice Sicilian town to visit

We were told three hours is all you need but to be honest we spent nearly five here and could have stayed longer! This is the first archaeological site in Italy that has had signs describing everything in at least two languages, sometimes they had three. Not only that but they encouraged you to bring a packed or picnic lunch... More

I have visited Greek temples and enjoyed them always but the Valley of the Temples (actually on a high hill!) matched the Acropolis in Athens.
