Scala dei Turchi and Valley of the Temples

img_9979Reason #42 why you need two weeks in Sicily.  The stupendous whiter than white Turkish steps, and the magnificent Valley of the Temples are 20 minutes apart near the ancient (but not so any more) city of Agrigento.  Do it in style, with fresh seafood lunch at Salmoriglio in Porto Empedocle, right between the two attractions.  Probably one of the most memorable single days I’ve had in any trip.  Staying in the surreal Ciuci’s Manor surly helped.  The way to see the temples, especially on a hot summer day, is to park at the bottom of the valley, take a taxi to the top (3 euros), and walk down.  At Scala dei Turchi you park in the parking lot off the road, and go down to the beach.  Takes about 20 minutes to reach the steps.  Bring plenty of water to both
