Full description
Enjoy a scenic 2-hour drive into the countryside to Agrigento on this full-day excursion from Palmero.

Situated on a plateau overlooking the sea, with the Hypsasand the Akragas rivers nearby and a ridge to the north offering a degree of natural fortification, Agrigento was founded in the 6th century BC by Greek colonists from Gela.

The 8-hour excursion includes a short stop for a coffee (not included in the tour price) en route to Agrigento, before arriving at the Valley of the Temples. Visit the Hera, Concordia and Apollo temples and Hardcastle villa, with a guidebook that will provide more information about the sites.

You’ll have free time to decide on a place for lunch, before your driver takes you to the Agrigento Archaeology Museum.

After exploring the museum’s collections, you’ll be transferred back to Palermo.
