I was extremely lucky this day. As one of the most important attractions in Sicily I was there on a cool day in February alone with my own guide. We got there early and there was no one else in the whole park. This place...More

In Sicily, there are more Greek ruins than in Greece, so make the drive across the island to the modern-day coastal town of Agrigento, then head to the hills above to explore an entire landscape of temples and connecting roads.

There are better temples in Sicily, but if you are in Agrigento, you should go and visit this place. Traffic directions are bad, parking not at all entrances (3 entrances). A fairly long walk thru the site. Not easy to take good pictures, due to...More

This area of temples near Agrigento is astonishing! The view of the sea and the greek ancient atmosphere are unique especially at sunset and night when all temples are enlightened do not trust the unofficial ticket sellers outside the archeological site!

I'm sorry I didn't see this until now. We didn't stay in the area. We had a driver from Palermo to Siracusa and stopped to spend the day.
