What to expect

Treat yourself to a real journey into the past, into a story that will leave you breathless! The Archaeological Park of Agrigento, in Sicily, has a width of about 1300 hectares and houses an extraordinary monumental heritage and landscape, which includes the remains of the ancient city of Akragas and the surrounding area, with its stunning views of the sea. Akragas was one of the most important Greek colonies in Sicily, founded in 582 BC by settlers from the nearby Gela and from Rhodes. A Unesco World Heritage Site since 1997, this is one of the largest archaeological parks in the world, a very well preserved one.

This skip the line tour will take you to discover the most representative part of the Park, the sacred hill, known as the Valley of the Temples, for its series of important Doric temples of the Hellenistic period. The route starts from the Temple of Juno, through the entire early Christian Byzantine necropolis along the walls of the Greek city. Following the visit of the Temple of Hera (Juno) Lacinia, Concordia, Heracles (Hercules), Olympian Zeus (Jupiter), Castor and Pollux (Dioscuri) and Hephaistos (Vulcan). In the distance you will also see the ruins of the Temple of Aesculapius and that of Vulcan.
