Thinking that there would be far too many people at the Valley the next day, I took a local bus immediately. Of Sicily's larger town Agrigento is my favourite. Not only is its principal street, the Via Atenea, a real road with real shops; the Valley of the Temples is a real marvel. Goodness knows why they needed so many temples but it certainly provides a magical place now!. The east side of the road is best as the temples are less ruined and one has been re-constructed. However the enormous pile of rubble to the west that was once the temple of Zeus has much interest.
I decided to watch the procession next day and perhaps follow it for at least part of the fianal open air concert.
