Day By Day

ITINERARY: full day
Today we drive through the interior of Sicily to reach Agrigento. Upon arrival you will have an independent visit to the Archaeological Museum (Admission fee: not included), who offers a fine introduction to the splendors of ancient Akragas and gives an insight into the life of the Greek settlers.
Free time for lunch. In the afternoon two hours walking tour on the Valley of the Temples (Admission fee: not included), a Unesco World Herit-age site. Covers the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Hercules and the Temple of Zeus. 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-an-cretan colonist from the neighbouring Gela who named their city Akragas after the nearby river of that name. It rapidly increased in size, importance and military strength under Phalarides, the first ty-rant, and later under Theron, who extended his sway over northern Sicily as far as Himera.Agrigento was a city of artists and illustrious personages, amongst whom the philosopher Empedocles. Pindar defines it as “the most beautiful of mortal cities” and, in fact, in the Vth century B.C., those famous temples, whose beauty we still admire today, were built.
Later we then return to Palermo.
