Agrigento, 128km's south of Palermo, has been lauded as one of the most enthralling, unforgettable sightseeing spots in all of Europe. This is not because of its uninspiring modern town, but because of the fabulous Valle dei Templi (Valley of the Temples), which was the catalyst of historic transformation through ancient times. To get around more freely and independently, why not purchase cheap car hire in Agrigento right here with us. The majority of tourists opt for car rentals as their favoured choice of transport, so you wont regret it.
The town pales in comparison to the temples, although the Abbazia di Santo Spirito, a 13th century church, merits a visit. With its Gothic façade and ornate Baroque interior, it is the town’s chief historical site. The intricately designed windows around the church are particularly interesting.
Just below the town, you’ll find the marvellous Valle dei Templi, home to some of the greatest Greek ruins in the world. In the 6th century BC, this was where Greek colonists thrived in their intellectual dominance until losing the town to the Carthaginians in 406 BC. The Romans succeeded in capturing the town in 210 BC.
One of the grandest temples is the Temple of Concord, referred to locally as Tempio della Concordia, which was built in peripheral hexastyle, with thirteen columns on its side, six columns in front and six more in the back. The oldest temple is the Temple of Hercules, referred to locally as Tempio di Ercole. Here visitors can still see evidence of the fires set by Carthaginian invaders.
After a tiring day visiting the many temples, you should visit Ristorante il Dehor. Vaunted as one of the best restaurants in Sicily, it features traditional cuisine served in lavish surroundings. The restaurant is situated five km's west of town, in the Foresteria Baglio della Luna Hotel.
