We visited April 2017 Valley of Temples. My family said we must go here to see these Ruins and very worth the drive. Make sure you take a trip up the road by car to visit the museum first. We spent an hour and a half inside the museum before making our way down to the site. We saw so... More

This has been my second trip to Valle Dei Templi. I know what to expect but still it was difficult to find parking place, ticket office and services like cafeteria when you are there inside. On that day also lot of school children were visiting there and they didn't understand how to respect elderly people. But still I'm very fond... More

I only had a few hours due to transportation arrangement, and wished I had more time so to see the place more leisurely, visit the garden within (separate ticket), and perhaps see the place illuminated at night. Finding the ticket office from the bus stop was an adventure. It required walking downhills with a few turns (but once you are... More

It is a wonderful place if you appreciate art. Even otherwise it can an be quite an exhilarating experience. We had taken the trip in the evening before sunset by the time we returned it was dark and the lights were on. The place presents quite unique experiences one during day time and the other under man made light. I... More

Fascinating visit to this beautiful archaeological site. Our local guide Claudio gave us an amazzing amount of information as we walked trhrough the temple ruins. Well worth a visit. Make sure you go to the Archaological Museum in nearby Agrigento to see the thousands of amazing finds from this important site.

There's not a lot else to see in Agrigento, but this lovely walk is well worth the trip. If you can, be sure to walk from the starting point but bring water if it's in the summer!

Greek, Roman, Asians... they all lived there at one point. Great place to visit. I would hate to be there in the summer as it would be really hot and dry, but April was great!

Staying within walking distance, visiting on a quiet Sunday and with cool but sunny weather we had a simply fantastic few hours exploring this amazing place. The "Valley of Temples" site is huge, good walking shoes, a hat, water and time are required. Visiting on a Sunday in April, crowds were not an issue. Stay in old Agrigento, it is... More

Overdose here on your Greek temples. Pace yourself for the 2km stretch of temple ruin after temple. It is possible to get a little bus to one end and then walk back. Try and go early or late afternoon. There is a cafe there not cheap but not too expensive . Parking is close by costs a few euros.
