On 12/26/06, we visited Valle di Templi in Agrigento in the morning, then drove to Ragusa with a stop at Comiso. The Agrigento archaeological area is a UNESCO World Hertiage Site, and Ragusa is one of 8 Baroque towns in the UNESCO World Heritage "Val di Noto" listing.

Via Atenea, the main street in Agrigento, late night.

View of Agrigento from our hotel, early morning.

3* Tre Torri, in Villagio Mosé. Clean, but old interior.

Probably the best-preserved Greek Temple in the world.

We walked by it and would come back later.

Walked along Via Sacra to the Temple of Hera.

We ate at "Kokalos" the night before (surrounded by trees, center-left).
