Through this tour, you will have the chance to admire the magnificent Doric temples of the sacred hill, as the Temple of Hera (Juno), the Temple of Concordia, Temple of Herakles (Hercules), the Temple of Zeus (Jupiter) and Sanctuary of chthonic deities. Follow the steps and the words of your expert guide and you will also understand the culture that led to the construction of those majestic structures and you will get to know the characters that made Akragas 'the most beautiful city of mortals'.

After the Vally of the Temples, your guide will take you to visit the Regional Archaeological Museum "Pietro Griffo". The museum houses an impressive collection of vases, two famous Greek marble statues, sarcophagi from the Greek and Roman periods and the original of one of the colossal Telamons of the Temple of Olympic Jupiter.
