In this amazing place, you can easily combine a beach holiday and cultural one. The provincial capital Agrigento is a city with a rich history dating back to the period before Christ. The spirit of antiquity is everywhere. At the center of the city you can walk for hours, admiring the historic churches, antique buildings, overgrown with ivy (including the house where Luigi Pirandello was born). The main attraction of the region is Valley of the Temples which is on a hill, about 2.5 km south of the historic city center.

Its main wealth are the monuments that have survived from the ancient city Akpagac, founded in the VI century BC.: Temple of Olympian Jupiter, the Temple of the Dioscuri, the Temple of Hercules, Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Juno Lacina, the Temple of Aesculapius and the Tomb of Theron. In February, there are hundreds of almond trees in bloom, collected from all over Italy, and there is a festival dedicated to the celebration of blossoming almond. The main resorts are Scala dei Turchi, Sciacca, Menfi which are known for their sandy beaches and clear sea.
