The Agrigento's coast between nature and archaeology.
A tour through the “Valle dei templi” of Agrigento, one of the most beautiful archaeological sites of Greek civilization in Sicily.
A few kilometres from Agrigento, the “Valle dei Templi” (the Templus valley) rises as testimony of “the most beautiful of mortal cities” in which it is possible to find, even now, the indelible marks of a population that formed the history and the character of this isle, the Greeks. Since 1997 it has been a world heritage site; the archaeological park, with its 1300 hectares, is one of the most extensive in the world. Traveling the route along the golden tuff ruins, under the warm Sicilian sun, will bring you to the ancient glories of a big city, while the religious silence that surrounds the impressive “Tempio della Concordia” will invite you to be caressed by the sea breeze that, everyday, pays tribute to the greatness of the site.
