What To Expect
Agrigento, according to legend, was founded by Daedalus and his son Icarus after they had fled from Crete "by air". Historically, however, its origins date back to 582 B.C. when it was founded by Rhodi, a Cretan colonist from the neighboring Gela, who named their city Akragas after the nearby river of that name.
In this tour, we'll drive through the interior of Sicily to reach Agrigento. Upon arrival, you'll visit the Archaeological Museum (admission fee not included), which offers a fine introduction to the splendors of ancient Akragas and gives an insight into the life of the Greek settlers. Afterwards, there will be free time for lunch.
In the afternoon, we'll have a two-hour walking tour on the Valley of the Temples (admission fee not included), a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The visit will cover the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Hercules and the Temple of Zeus.
After the tour, we will return to Palermo.
