A tour of Agrigento’s Valley of the Temples is a must if you are passionate about ancient Greek colonies in Sicily. This archaeological walk, is a voyage, an encounter with a past civilization of paramount importance with regard to the economic and cultural development of the island and a great part of the Mediterranean world.
Following its foundation by the Greeks in 581 B.C.E, Agrigento quickly became an important trading centre between Europe and Africa. This site, rightly called the valley of the temples, boasts a series of magnificent temples dating back to the 5th century B.C.E. It is ideally located in the delightful countryside filled with beautiful almond groves and ancient olive trees.
Price varies according to the number of participants.
