  • Was so much we wanted to visit this site after seeing it we must confirm that worth it. Expected approximation and neglect, as often, alas, happen in Sicily. Instead we were surprised by order, cleanliness and the presence of clear explanations at every point of the site. Downside: to reach Agrigento, if you arrive in Sicily by plane or train, you should rent a car, otherwise it's a bit difficult to get around.

  • Not to be missed! A dive into history with remains of any age. Count minimum 2 hour visit, or more. A lot of walking but it's worth it. Visited late in the day with the sunset as a bonus to make beautiful pictures, this Valley has delighted us!

  • Unique artistic and historical attractions, the visit takes a half day good, then in the Sicilian summer should gear up with Hat and water in tow. Combined ticket with the correct, shame about the usual lacked coordination among the various authorities of the place which does not indicate work in progress, times not respected, not always qualified staff to the various tasks ... whatever we are in Italy and you get used to everything. anyway to see at least once in their lifetime.

  • This is an amazing place. You need a good few hours to walk around and some decent shoes - it killed both our pairs of walking sandals! It is well worth it though. The best option is to walk the film route but for €3 you can get a bus one way. There is a cafe on site. Confusingly you pay for the food first then give your ticket to the ladies who heat it up for you.
  • Great historical site. Good amount to see. Best with a tour guide to provide extra information.
  • Nice place to stay. Entrance Fee is 10€ per person. Parking costs extra but there are some places around the parking area which are free
  • The most impressive there is of course the temple of Concordia, as the best preserved one. The only this spot is enough to get there without any doubt. Be prepared however to walk and walk and walk, three hours of walking at least.
  • If you're a tourist visiting Sicily then I will highly recommend this place...you ll feel like you re in the ancient days when you get I just loved it😍
