Agrigento and Valley of the Temples Day Trip from Palermo

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Leave your Palermo hotel with your guide and group, and travel along country roads to the historic city of Agrigento. Along the way, stop for a coffee (own expense) before you arrive at the Valley of the Temples. 

    Pay your entrance fee, then visit the temples of Hera, Concordia, and Apollo, as well as Hardcastle Villa. As you explore, learn about the ruins and Agrigento itself.

    Set on a plateau overlooking the sea, the city is thought to have been founded by Greek colonists around 580 BC. It became the scene of ancient conflict and power struggles, marked by the Punic Wars when the Carthaginians and Romans battled for control of the city. Hear about life in the city after the fall of the Roman Empire, when locals moved to the acropolis at the top of the hill. 

    When your tour of the site finishes, enjoy some free time for lunch at your own expense. Then, head inside Agrigento Archaeological Museum to explore at your leisure. The museum is home to more than 5,000 archaeological artifacts from the prehistoric era to the end of the Greek-Roman period. 

    Later, meet your driver for the journey back to your Palermo hotel.

    Please note that the guide is included with minimum 13 participants.
