Meet your local licensed guide at the ticket office near the Temple of Juno. The tour of the archaeological park starts with the Temple of Hera (Juno) built at the very top of the hill.

Then walk for about one mile downhill and stop along the main path to admire the city fortifications and Byzantine arcosolia, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Herakles, the Temple of Zeus and the Sanctuary of Chtonian Deities (Temple of Castor and Pollux). As you listen to your guide you’ll discover the secrets behind their construction, gain insight into the civilization that produced them and get to know the personages that made ancient Akragas “the most beautiful of mortal cities”
