AGRIGENTO AND THE AMAZING TEMPLES VALLEY

Half Day from Agrigento port/hotel

Today you will find the driver escort to visit the amazing Agrigento and the Temples Valley. This splendid archaeological park consists of eight temples (and various other remains) built between about 510 BC and 430 BC: the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Heracles, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Temple of Castor and Pollux, the Temple of Hephaestos, the Temple of Demeter, and the Temple of Asclepius (the God of Medicine). Apart from this latter, which is to be found on the banks of the Akragas river, all are situated in the same area on rocky crests south of modern day Agrigento (not really in a Valley at all!). Later back to Agrigento port/hotel.

SANT'ANGELO MUXARO AND COOKING AT BAKERY

Full Day from Agrigento port/hotel

pizza_dough.JPGThis morning we depart for the country town of Sant’Angelo Muxaro.  First time visitors can’t help but be dazzled and awed when, from the provincial road that meanders from Agrigento inland along curves, twists and bends between mountains and hills, they are greeted by a uniquely spectacular view. On a lonely hill, in the center of the Platani river valley, surrounded by wild and harsh vegetation, a handful of houses lie on the sheer slope of the hill—this is the small town of Sant’Angelo Muxaro. Upon arrival meet Donna Concetta. She will teach us Pizza and Bread preparation. Simple home-cooked light lunch to taste Sicilian Pizza and Pane Cunsatu (a typical homemade bread with olive oil and pecorino cheese). Later back to Agrigento port/hotel.
