  • The almond blossom festival of Agrigento

    The Almond Blossom Festival of Agrigento is probably the most famous folkloristic event in Sicily, founded in 1934.

    This year, the festival arrive to its 73rd edition and will take place from March 3rd to 11th, 2018. A lot of visitors don't know that this famous festival is already held at the beginning of February but it's in this month that in Sicily, thank to its mild temperatures, the spring awakening begins. The countryside is filled with delicate almond blossoms and the famous valley of the temples of Agrigento offers a wonderful panorama. Every year new events were added to the festival and nowadays it also comprehends the international folklore festival (62nd), the festival of the "Children of the world" (17th edition), typical sicilian carriage parades. The almond blossom festival will be a moment of brotherhood between different cultures.
  • Visiting the valley of the temples

    The valley of the temples of Agrigento is one of the main sicilian tourist attractions. If you are doing a Sicily tour, a visit to the valley of the temples should be a "must", despite the great distances and the long journey times to Agrigento departing from other Sicilian towns.

    Spring and early autumn are the best seasons for a sightseeing tour in the valley of the temples, thanks to the mild weather. From late January begins the blossoming of almond trees (every year, the first week of February, the famous almond blossom festival takes place in Agrigento). In the following weeks, also the other flowers blossom, creating a fantastic colored carpet in the countryside. If you are visiting Agrigento in summer, think at the high temperatures of the Sicilian summer. In the valley of the temples are only few shadow spots, so avoid the hotest hours for your visit and eventually ask if the archaeological area is opened in the evening too.
