Gorgeous!

Absolutely worth it. The walk is not bad at all - perfectly fine for children. Garden of Eden is a must!

Exceptional ruins. We were fortunate and the weather was cloudy but dry. The sights and scenery are spectacular. Also keep your eyes out for the very rare Scicilian goats.

It was raining the day we were here and it was still an amazing visit. We heard the developed area around the temples diminished the experience, but this was not the case for us. The condition of the temples more than makes up for the surrounding area.

Under 25 pay 5euros which is reasonable. Nice walk, could do with more information in English, the guides were only in Italian and not worth buying at all.

Why have so many Greek temples fallen to the action of earthquakes, and the Concord Temple still stands sound? No one really knows, but it might have something to do with a clay layer under the rock that acts like a shock absorber. In any event, it is a beautiful and elegant structure that will strike you at the core... More

The Valle of the Templi outside Agrigento does not disappoint. Spend a half day or even a fiull day strolling among the greek and roman runs and reconstructions. delightful.

I have visited this site several times and now I am fed up with the whole experience. This criticism is aimed at the people who manage the temples not at the site itself. The site seems to be managed by no one, we parked our car in the car park, a wet dusty patch of ground,on leaving the machine doesn't,t... More

This temple is the most complete of the several in the area and it's location is quite spectacular--perched on a hill overlooking the city and the sea. Well worth a visit to Agrigento for this site alone!

This temple is the logo of UNESCO world heritage, and it is easy to see why. It is magnificent, and the approach along a wide promenade creates a stunning vision to this large and wonderfully preserved and restored temple. One can look at the temple from 3 angles but not get close enough to climb, which is good because it... More
