Sara was a wonderful guide to the Valley of the Temples: very knowledgable about the history

and a genuine enjoyment in showing me the treasures of this place. I consider myself very

fortunate indeed in having spent a afternoon with Sara, while English was as excellent as

her scholarship.

We really enjoyed our day out with Sara, first the temple site, then the museum and finally

Agrigento city. It was really fascinating. We toured with our three children - 5, 12, 14- and

they also enjoyed themselves. Needless to say, Sara knew the answer to every question

and her passion for Agrigento and it's history was clear.

 Sara was a wonderful guide, very friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all our questions. She especially did a great job of maneuvering around big groups and in the museum knew her way around well enough for us to see the highlights without getting bogged down as there were a lot of works there.

Find here 5 tips to get the best out of your visit in the Valley of Temples in Agrigento!

1) Start the tour early in the morning, as soon as the gates open, at 08,30 . You will avoid to be surrounded by too many groups. Furthermore the temperature will be cool and light and colors are great for pictures!

2) Leave the car in the " Porta V parking", at the bottom of the archaelogical area and get a taxi (2,00 per person) to reach the upper entrance: this will spare you energy and time, since you will be walking downhill all the time of the visit.

3) Buy a combined tickets: it costs 13,50 euros instead of 10,00 and gives you right to entry in the archaelogical museum.

4)Mind that in face of the Concordia Temple, in the middle of the archaelogical area, there is a path that leads straight to the muesum. Follow it. It' s a nice walk in the country and will give you even the occasion to visit  remains of an ancient hellenistic - roman quarter.

5) Use sunscreen and hat. Bring water and eventually a snack: the tap water is not drinkable and just one bar is available inside the archaelogical area.
