Situated about 3km below the modern city of Agrigento , the Unesco – listed Valley of the Temples is one of the most mesmerising sites in the Mediterranean , boasting the best – preserved Doric temples outside Greece. As impressive as the temples are, what you see today are mere vestiges of the ancient city of Akrages, which was once the fourth – largest city in the unknown world. The Valley is highlighted by the stunningly well-preserved Tempio della Concordia, one of the several ridge-top temples that once served as beacons for homecoming sailors. This tour offers the possibility of a full immersion inside the Sicilian rooted art. In fact it starts from the exploration of Sicilian ancient art of the Valley , towards the exploration of the Sicilian contemporary art at the Farm Cultural Park which is located in Favara, a mid-sized town 10 km from Agrigento. It is also the ideal place for a nice and pleasant lunch break.

Back in 2010 , Andrea Bartoli bought several abandoned buildings in the dilapidated heart of Favara and set up The Farm Cultural Park, a unique neighborhood devoted to art. In the intervening years , Farm has become a centre of exhibitions by international and local artists, housing a gallery of thought-provoking artworks, along with shops, a garden bar , cultural events, talks, screenings, workshops and shows going on throughout the year. The project has brought a whole new breathe of life in Sicily. Everything is beautifully designed , with a pervasive sense of whimsy and innovative energy .
