Palermo to Syracuse: Transfer & Agrigento Tour & lunch

1. Palermo to Syracuse: Transfer & Agrigento Tour & lunch

Today we drive through the interior of Sicily to reach Agrigento to see the Valley of the Temples: two hours guided walking tour on the Valley of the Temples (skip the line ticket included), an important Unesco World Heritage site. Covers the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Hercules and the Temple of Zeus. Agrigento, according to legend, was founded by Daedalus and his son Icarus after they had fled from Crete “by air”. Historically, however, its origins date back to 582 B.C. when it was founded by Rhodian-cretan colonist from the neighbouring Gela who named their city Akragas after the nearby river. It rapidly increased in size, importance and military strength under Phalarides, the first tyrant, and later under Theron, who extended his way over northern Sicily as far as Himera. In conclusion, Agrigento was a city of artists and illustrious personages, amongst whom the philosopher Empedocles. Pindar defines it as “the most beautiful of mortal cities” and, in fact, in the Vth century B.C., those famous temples, whose beauty we still admire today, were built.

What people are saying about Agrigento

Fantastic trip showing the variety that Sicily offers

Fascinating tour of the different landscapes on north and south of the island bringing in the Valley of the Temples and Villa Romana del Casale which were stunning. Vincenzo was extremely knowledgeable and gave a great insight into Sicily throughout the tour. It was definitely worth having a guide and good quality minibus for the tour, learning much more about the area, spending the time better and not having to drive!! I would thoroughly recommend this as a way to cross the island.
