A gentle stroll downhill from Colleverde Park Hotel through an incredible historic landscape. We spent an entire afternoon going through out the site. Note this requires a lot of walking and some hill climbing. The quality of the ruins is outstanding and should not be missed.

It's one of the places you have to visit when you in Sicyli. They are huge and impressive. Part of history.

We enjoyed wondering around the numerous temples and ruins of this very large park. We went to the museum first and it gives you a better idea of what you're seeing.

My friends and I visited Agrigento in April 2015 and also visited in June 2012. It's really worth seeing. Three of the temples there are the best preserved Greek temples anywhere. April was a good time to go because it is not as hot and crowded as in June. Bring a snack with you because there aren't restaurants or food... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our walk through the valley. The only downside is a lack of toilets for the number of people visiting and the length of the visit. There needs to be more along the 2 km stretch of walkway.

Really enjoyed spending the day wandering around the Valley of the Temples. Lovely setting, not too crowded (in the fall, I'd also recommend in spring). We had a guide although I think you'd be just as well off with a good guide book. Check out the little store selling wine and olive oil made from crops grown in the park,... More

The only reason to go to Agrogento is to walk through the temple complex. It took us a while to find a way in.....there was no expected ticket office. Allow at least two hours to experience this unique site. There is a well stocked bar in the grounds to replace all the sweat exuded from a morning under a hot... More

About 10mins walk from the entrance to the main temple and it is definitely worth visiting. Make sure that you have enough protection for your skin - sun screen, hat would be useful.

Well preserved UNESCO site which is part of their logo - the temples are in excellent condition and despite a fairly steep entry charge and the odd swarm of tourist groups it is possible to find a spot to quietly take in this amazing site (out of season). Some clearer signposting might be useful, with some verbiage to explain specifics... More

Had a great morning walking around all the ruins, some of the temples are still quite in tact which is amazing considering how old they are. Looks like some renovations going on, but still lots of information available.
