Product code: 2372
Overview

When it was called Akragas, Pindaro considered it to be "the Most Beautiful among Mortal Cities". The town was founded by colonists from Rhodes and Crete coming from nearby Gela and reached its maximum splendour in the V c. BC when the magnificent Doric temples were built on the southern hill. In 406 the town was conquered by the Carthaginians though with the last Punic War it passed into Roman hands, who took over and changed its name to Agrigentum.

After your Local Guide picks you up at your hotel in Palermo, you'll drive through the wonderful inner side of the landscape south of Palermo; the Sicani Mountains and the hilly landscape is already a highlight of this tour.

After approx. 2 hours you'll reach Agrigento to visit the Valley of Temples. Start a walk through the archaeological area with your local expert beginning from the Temple of Juno - enjoy an excellent view of the entire valley; admire the Temple of Concordia which is beautifully preserved. The oldest ruin is traditionally named the Temple of Hercules. These are among the greatest Greek ruins in the world, and the splendour of the temples in the Doric style, built during the fifth and sixth centuries BC.

Following we'll have time for a lunch break and then back in Palermo in the afternoon.
