Directions from Agrigento train station to the temple Valley

by joe21

Hey!
I'm Joe from Puerto Rico. I'll go to Sicily in a cruise ship(this nov) just for one day..
and I want to see all the temples (or the best of Sicily).. can any one give me advice or a tip on how to get to the temples... I think the
best way is to get the train from Palermo to Agrigento and then take a bus (but, which one?).. I really don't know!
>> Thanks in advance for any advace... !!

Palermo Centrale to Agrigento Centrale by train takes about 2 hours, trains run every couple of hours: see http://bahn.hafas.de/bin/query.exe/en.
Normal city buses 1, 2 and 3 from in front of the railway station in Piazza Marconi go to the Valley of the Temples - you have to buy a ticket - about €1 - from a nearby kiosk (when you get on the bus stamp this in the machine). Ask the driver to stop at "Posto di Ristoro" for the ticket office in front of the Temple of Ercole.

Train is ok. Just to offer you an alternative, the bus company Cuffaro provides a bus service from Palermo to Agrigento. You can check timetables and prices on their site:

Travel Tips for Agrigento

Conversation with locals

by janika

This applies to all Italy in general. Conversation with locals: Sometimes non locals think that Italians are mad or angry when talking to each other. It is a custom among Italians to speak very loud.

One would think they're yelling or some sort when they are not. At times arguments heat up and people say what they think and trying to convince the others that they're right and the other is wrong. In this case they raise their voices and often the loudest person is the one who is right and the others have to listen to that person.

Do not get intimidated by this! If you join a conversation of Italians, just use the same tone of loud voice they do. They will have no problem with it.

Read about some rather interesting Italian customs in the web page below. See URL.

Capo Bianco at Eraclea Minoa

by picek

Capo Bianco is the reef upon which lays Eraclea Minoa ancient site. Its white cliff descend steeply into Mediterranean sea and it forms one of the most dramatic sights here by the coast. We decided to have a look into new settlement below Eraclea, a small village where they had few houses - and most of them had some rooms to rent. Looked quite lonely in September with noone in the streets. Although it was nearly rainy that day... the view from coast to Capo Bianco was stunning. Maybe even more than otherwise due the color of the sky and water which were changing from minute to minute. A few people were playing with waves at the beach and it looks like really nice place to swim in hot weather - with pine grove right in front of beach and before the village. Few bars and restaurants by the coast were open with terraces at the edge of the sea - good to try some food and local vine (a very nice one) again.

West of Capo Bianco there's Platani Valley Nature reserve and more wide sandy shores.

Temple of Asklepios

by hquittner

We were on a roll of discovery! After Theron's Tomb driving East on S115 the next right was a dirt road down into a farm-like are where we finally wer stopped by a wire fence. There across the field was the remains of the Temple with a column peeping out and large cella wall. The fields around have unusual species of slmond trees and this land is a protected preserve. Nevertheless we could find nobody to help us get in to wander thhrough the structure. What a shame.
