Considered one of the greatest cities of the ancient Mediterranean world, Agrigento in Sicily is well preserved and remains in an exceptionally intact condition. The Doric temples that dominate the ancient town are one of the most outstanding monuments in Greek culture and art, shedding light on the life, culture and burial practices of its early Christian inhabitants.Recommended for:

Greek ruins. On an Italian island. That are 2500 years old. And extremely well-preserved. Surrounded by a valley filled with gorgeous Sicilian landscape. Just a few hours from Palermo, Agrigento is a perfect day trip (the drive there is beautiful, about three hours).

While roaming amongst these beautifully preserved ruins, you may forget you are in Italy and think you've gone to Greece! But wait...Your friendly local tour guide will remind you that there are more preserved Greek ruins in Sicily than in Greece. Enjoy touring Valley of the Temples during the day, but try to catch a glimpse from afar at night, when they are lit.
