Great stay at Villa Ginevra
A lovely villa with beautiful pool and views. Hosts are very friendly. You will definitely need a car to explore the area as it is between two towns.
Sehr Schönes Ferienhaus
Unser Aufenthalt in der Nähe von Ribera war sehr erholsam. Wir sind mit drei Kindern angereist – Das Haus ist groß genug für fünf Personen!
Die Kinder hatten großen Spaß vor allem im Pool,
den wir einen Großteil der Zeit für uns alleine hatten. Auch für uns Erwachsene gab es genug Sitz und Liegemöglichkeiten ( sonnig und schattig)
die Vermieter wohndirekt mit auf dem Gelände und waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Wir haben die Zeit sehr genossen und würden immer wiederkommen!

The valley of the Temples – Agrigento
The Valley of the Temples is one of the most suggestive attraction of Sicily. It rises in the southern part of the old city and is considered the biggest archaeological park in the world. Among a blooming almond trees countryside, the wonderful ruins of the temples, whose architectural majesty is still intact, will fascinate you.
This archaeological marvel consists of eight temples built in the 5th century BC: the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Heracles, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Temple of Castor and Pollux, the Temple of Hephaestos, the Temple of Demeter, and the Temple of Asclepius (the God of Medicine). The last one is situated on the banks of the Akragas river, all the others are in the same area on a rocky scarp in the southern modern Agrigento.
The Valley of the Temples is the most sublime evidence of the Greek civilization in Sicily until today and it has been an Unesco world heritage site since 1998.
Scala Dei Turchi
It is a real singular white cliff made by limestone and clay which rises along the coast of Realmonte and overlooks a crystalline sea. Its name comes from the Turkish invasions, since the legend says that Saracens got there from the sea and climbed the cliff to reach the near villages and attacked them. It has became a tourist attraction for its particular colour and shape; wind and rain have modelled it throughout the time, creating a huge natural staircase whose lines are rounded and irregular. Its white rocks look brighter thanks to the sun light and the water is incredibly clear.. it’s a paradise!
