This is the essential Agrigento (and a World Heritage) site, and one of Sicily's must-sees. Extraordinary.

We got to the Valley of the Temples just when it opened at 9am, and were pleased afterwards because as we were leaving about two hours later, there were loads of people everywhere. The site is beautiful and the temples are amazing. I recommend that you read up about the temples before visiting the site, and invest in a guide book and a map! There are very few signs around, and the area is big! We didn't have either a guidebook or a map and I think both would have made the experience much more enjoyable. Also allow plenty of time - if you like to take photos and appreciate the temples, it may take a while to explore the whole area. We took about 2 hours and we didn't see the gardens, so you'd be best to allow even more time if you intend to visit the gardens as well.

The natural layout was most wonderful with view of the Mediterranean. Easy walking, even in warm October Sun. Bring water and have a snack, lunch at the the cafe near the Temple of Juno.

Try and get here early or late to avoid the bus loads of tourists. The views are stunning and seem to constantly change as the sun gets higher in the sky and clouds pass over. Very photogenic place so don't forget your cameras!

I really recommend to visit this amazing place, but you have to bring your own book with descriptions of the ruins... there is no audio-guides or maps, neither signs on each site.
I felt that it's abandoned and not well look after, but still the place is amazing, how the temples are there still standing around the beautiful nature and birds... for me better than the temples in Rome and Florence..
