While Agrigento's nearby beaches are spectacular, much of the focus of this small seaside city are on the ancient Greek and Italian structures, and the surrounding temples in the area. Most visit the town for the nearby Valley of the Temples, perhaps the region's most famous collection of ancient architecture, and a hauntingly beautiful attraction worth fully exploring during your Agrigento holiday.
The Valley of Temples is the biggest attraction in the area, boasting five magnificent examples of ancient Greek settlements. To put your Agrigento holiday in context, visit the Archaeological Museum to learn more about these structures, or take a guided tour through the Valley for the complete experience.
The city of Agrigento is home to a number of historical landmarks, particularly in the old centre. The large cathedral is over 1,000 years old, offering stunning views across the valley, while the Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Greci, a fascinating Norman church built around the same time, sits on the site of an ancient Greek temple in the heart of the city.
A holiday to Agrigento is a fantastic way to explore Sicily. Ferries from nearby Porto Empedocle will take you to the popular resorts at Lampedusa, Linosa and Pantelleria, offering fine golden beaches and excellent diving conditions, for a day on the Sicilian coast.
