  • The Archaeological Museum of Agrigento encloses an infinite amount of artifacts, valued as much as possible from the few availability offered by the region of Sicily. The museum displays artifacts not only related to the Valley of the temples but throughout the territory attached to it. The visit is long but well worth it, especially to admire the Majesty of Talamone Temple of Zeus! Recommended!

  • A Museum in which to spend hours to stop. Wonderful exhibits load for viewing and to marvel at. In particular, the Skulturensammlung and the vases show the diversity and skill of the artists from ancient times.
