The 'vallee di tempi' is truly one of the greatest wonders of the ancient world. The Temples, especially Concordia and Juno, are spectacular and cannot fail to impress all who visit. Sicily helps us make sense of the ancient world and Agrigento's Greek Temple complex is no exception.

The Valley of the Temples contains temples that are in much better condition than many of those in Greece! And the sandstone used to build them looks beautiful in the light of sunset, so visit during the day with a guide, but come back in the evening for sunset, and for when the Valley is lit with soft glowing lights....

The Valley of the Temples is well worth a visit. They are all in very good condition and the views are great. It was very hot when we were there and our guide did go on a bit, but it was really interesting!

This was very impressive, however make sure to get a good English speaking guide. We lucked out despite the person being very sweet. Price EUR70 for a guide 90 minutes

The beauty and condition of the Valley o f the Temples surpasses any picture that you might find in a travel guide. The condition of the temples is extraordinary, and the views are amazing. No wonder the greeks picked this site. We visited the site at the end of July. I think one good decision we made was to visit... More

If you aee in Agrigento, it's a must see. It effectively a smaller version of the Parthenon and it's kept in a very good shape. Same ticket to see all the archeological sites (valley of the temples). As per dec2013 there was no possibility to pay with crefit card, so take cash with you! And have fun in this Unesco... More

It's mind boggling to imagine how this was built without the use of modern day equipment. Seeing the temple was certainly worth sitting in the car for a few hours each way.

My first visit to Greek ruins was awe inspiring. This temple was stunning, and I spent ages sitting under an olive tree contemplating it and trying to get my head around the fact that it is over 2,500 years old. The whole Valley was a great experience. I thought it fairly well maintained, and on the day were were there,... More

Fantastic site, fairly well maintained. Fairly good interpretation for UK visitors. The temples and their history are fascinating. Ancient Greece in Italy - it is important to understand the history. If you are over 65 take proof for cheaper entry. Site is split in two by a busy road. The quieter western side was free access when we went in... More
