Agrigento was one of the most important and powerful Greek colonies of ancient Sicily. We will walk along the ancient sacred road, where an impressive sequence of still standing Doric temples will leave you absolutely astonished. Furthermore, we will admire the gigantic ruins of the huge Temple of Olympian Zeus and the famous garden named Kolymbethra. If you are really passionate about Archaeology, we can also visit the Archaeological Museum of Agrigento, where significant findings coming from the Greek city are exhibited. The tour lasts 3 hours. After lunch, we will move to Eraclea Minoa (about 45 minutes by car). The whole city of Eraclea is built up of a white soft stone and offers to visitors a spectacular location overhanging the sea. The small and fragile theater looks like a precious white shell open toward the sky. The tour lasts 2 hours.
