Palermo to Agrigenta

This morning before we left Palermo we walked down to the waterfront to see all the yachts and cruise ships. We also saw the mural of Giovanni Falcone and Paola Borsellino, two Italian judges who took on the mafia and were assassinated in 1992.

We drove south out of Palermo to our agritourismo near Agrigento where we are tonight. When our rooms were ready we went for a swim in the pool. It felt great because it is very hot here today.

About 5:00 we visited the valley of the temples to see the temples that were built there in the fifth century BC.
