I really encourage you to take a tour in my city. The Valley of Temples is a World Heritage Site and so a place with a very rich historical background. Don't waste your occasional presence in Sicily with only a superficial look at the Temples. Take the chance to get a real insight of the site. You will discover, at the end of the tour, that, no matter from what side of the globe you come from: this site is part of your history. It belongs to you.
Obviously the Greek temples and the Sicilian landscape will appeal directly to your spirit and senses. They will fascinate you with their magic. But with the guided tour you will learn more about their history. The guide will disclose the secrets of their perfect architecture, the reasons why they still fascinate us. At the end of the tour you will look at them as an essential part of mankind's history.
I'm looking forward to welcoming you!
A Recent Review of this guide
Informative and interesting not only on Valley of the Temples, also on local Sicilian life and Mediterranean archeological insight.
I am a local guide in Agrigento since 1998. I have a regular official license (SE084//44) and I have always worked in the tourism since I left University in Palermo where I integrated literary studies with exams in Art History and History of Sicily.
After I took the degree in English and German Litteratures, I spent one year abroad in UK and Ireland to get The Proficiency Certificate in English Studies released by the University of Cambridge. In Germany I worked for an year as an assistant of italian courses in a high school for classic studies, the Goethe Schule in Bochum.
As I started the activity of tour guide I realized it really suits me because conjugate the passion I have for history and arts with the pleasure to meet people from around the world.
I am not a driver-guide. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
