This amazing place has to be visited whenever you go to sicily. The place is well documented and clean (entrance fee for adults only 10€). In summer time It is recommended to go in the afternoon because of the day light condition (better for any kind of video and pictures). The only negative point is the access by car where... More

This is the tourist attraction of Agrigento. I would visit in the early evening if you are here in summer as it gets very hot or even after dark when the temples are floodlit. It is all very spectacular.

Loved the visit here - very hot though, which I found surprising as it was supposed to be almost winter... Went in the afternoon and it was amazing, it wasn't too busy and they are wonderfully preserved. Well worth a visit.

Unmissable! the site itself is beautiful but the temples are amazing! There is quite a long walk, from one end to the other (over 2 km) so be prepared with lots of water and suncream...

Amazingly well preserved temples from 5BC. Took the train from Palermo - just over 2 hours (€16 return) then local bus 1 (buy tickets in Station at Cafe - €1 one way) - the temples are 3km out of town down the hill towards the sea. The bus drops you off at the bottom of the site where you can... More

You can take a taxi to bring you from the car park (whatever East or West) to the other end, and so avoid to walk the 2 km back under the sun. It's quite expensive (3€ per pers in 2015), but that's possible choice with kids when sun is hard.

My husband is working in Italy for 6 months, and took a two week vacation so I could come over and see some sites. We saw Paestum, Pompeii, Herculaneum, and now, The Valley of the Temples. Each site has something special to offer, so I can't really say one is 'better' than another. In conjunction with the Museum, however, Valley... More

The Valley of Temples was our main reason for going to Agrigento in Sicily. It was worth the trip. If you like the Acropolis in Greece, you will really enjoy the Valley of Temples. One tip that I read that was extremely helpful was to park in the lot and take a taxi up to the beginning of the ruins... More
