    Tal der Tempel (auf einem Hügel)

    August 12, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Agrigento war mal wichtig. Die alten Griechen fanden es hier mega und haben ein paar Tempel auf einen Hügel gebaut. Die stehen jetzt schon circa 2500 Jahre rum.
    Weil die späteren Menschen ihre eigentliche Stadt noch weiter oben erbauten (hab ich mir nicht angeschaut 😁) nennen sie den Hügel trotzdem Tal der Tempel.Read more

    Valley of the Temples

    June 3, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    So we made an early start to catch the 8:30 bus which arrived at 8:45 never mind. Then a short walk to one of the ticket offices and we were in. It was a bit confusing at first as they had no maps, well no free maps anyway so we were a bit aimless initially and ended up walking one route three times, which it was a bit warm for really. Anyway we saw most things in the end, the most impressive was the Temple of Concordia mostly because this was the one that has been the most reconstructed so less imagination required, the Temple of Zeus would have been the biggest and this is where the giant statues were found, we didn’t go to the gardens as were told that it was really the wrong time of year? From the Temples we walked to the Museum to see some of the hundreds of artefacts recovered at the temple sites, the museum was at the site of the Greek theatre or meeting place. Then after waiting 40 mins for a bus back to boat we gave up and walked up to the old town of Agrigento before catching ‘a ticky tacky tour’ bus from the station to the marina, this bus went everywhere before it took us home!Read more
