Valley of the Temples - Agrigento
Sicily's “must-see” temples! Porto Empedocle is the most convenient gateway to one of Sicily’s most amazing sites – The ancient Greek city of Akragas and its temples. The archaeological area and the modern city of Agrigento are located only a few miles inland from the port.
The Greeks choose their location wisely in an exceptionally fine natural setting with stunning views of the Mediterranean countryside. Take a journey through history to see the massive Doric temples and their columns in a stunning setting that makes for amazing photos.
Locally licensed expert guides will bring the site alive with their commentary. The subtle beauty of almond and olive trees cover the surrounding areas, adding to the charm of the site. Explore the most important monuments: Temple of Juno, Temple of Concord, Temple of Hercules and the famous Temple of Zeus (the largest temple of Greek antiquity).
Following the visit, return by coach to the pier and the SeaDream yacht at Porto Empedocle.
