Agrigento Holidays

Agrigento is one of Sicily’s best known towns, offering visitors a taste of medieval Italy along with roots that delve deeper into the past. Once one of the world’s largest cities, this hilltop settlement is now a modern city with an atmospheric centre, filled with winding alleys and bustling piazzas. Of course, for many the main draw is the nearby Valley of the Temples: a dramatic UNESCO World Heritage site complete with some of the most outstanding remaining Ancient Greek structures found anywhere in the world.

And if that’s not enough to tempt you, Agrigento is also just a few miles from the beach so you can combine ancient history with some down time by the sea. It’s the ideal option for those wanting the best of both worlds – in Agrigento, history and relaxation can be enjoyed in equal measure.
