From Catania: Valley of the Temples and Turkish Steps

1. From Catania: Valley of the Temples and Turkish Steps

Begin the day with a pick-up from your accommodation in a comfortable minivan at around 8:30 AM. First stop will be in Agrigento. This city used to be the richest of all the Greek colonies.  Admire the beautiful and impressive Valley of the Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997. See some of the best preserved Greek temples in the world. Pindar, the Greek poet and writer, described it as one of the most beautiful cities of those inhabited by mortals. The Valley of the Temples is famous for its well-preserved temples, seven in total.  The Temple of Concordia is one of the best preserved Greek temples in the world helping the site to gain the classic UNESCO world heritage award. At the site, visit the remains of many other temples dedicated to various divinity like Juno, Hercules, Hephaestus, and Athena. Next see one of the most amazing beaches in Sicily. A few kilometers away from Agrigento, find the Scala dei Turchi, literally translated to Turkish steps. Discover a dazzling white rock formation, rising from the clear blue sea like giant steps. Walk this gentle slope, high above the sea on your feet, and enjoy a unique experience. Here, have free time to enjoy one of the most famous beaches in Sicily, and eat a Sicilian snack, including small pizzas, bottles of water and red local wine. Arrive back in Catania in the early evening.

La visite des temples vaut vraiment le coup. On est environ deux heures sur place, ce qui permet de prendre son temps pour visiter tranquillement. Il faisait chaud, il faut prévoir chapeau et crème solaire. Le paysage de la plage est très beau. Par contre il y a souvent du vent (très fort), ce qui fait voler du sable très fort et peut être dérangeant. Pour nager, il faut aller un peu loin car il y a de nombreuses formations rocheuses. Mais c'est vraiment sympa de nager dans ce décor, et de pouvoir s'asseoir sur ces rochers au milieu de l'eau loin de la plage. Pour le repas, c'est street food sicilienne (dont forcément gras et pas super équilibré) dans un petit bouiboui mais c'est copieux et avec plein d'options veggie. Et les proprio sont très accueillants. Le guide apporte en plus du vin sicilien et de l'eau. Notre guide, Giovanni, était très sympa avec plein d'informations interessantes à transmettre.

It was great had a blast. The wait of the line for the Tempels was over 45 minutes we wasted time in the line and didn't have enough time to see all the Temples.we were given only 2 h for the Temples After that we had to rush everything the rest of the stressful. The locations were gorgeous. But the ticket situation has to be handeld differently. I think the tour company can buy the tickets in advance for the group this way the group doenst have to stay in line forever. ..

We were picked up on time from we stayed ( a long way from the city centre ) by our very friendly driver, Antonio. We had three interesting stops to visit the Villa Romana del Casale with its beautiful mosaics, the Turkish steps where we had a dip in the warm water and the Valley of the Temples, so beautiful to look at, especially at sundown and a very tasty and generous lunch in Piazza Armenina.

Very enjoyable day! pick up in front of the accommodation, comfortable journey in which our guide (Riccardo) told us about the history of Sicily and the places we will have visited. Right times, lunch in an oven in the center of Agrigento and then a couple of hours on the beach.

it was a beautiful experience. Giovanni was a very knowledgeable guide, very helpful and friendly. The Valley of the Temples is fantastic! highly recommended experience !!!
