Holiday in Agrigento for children and teenagers
The Valle dei Templi and Casa di Pirandello are festivals that spread messages of peace. Agrigento has so much to offer, especially to the little ones!
The International Festival for Children around the World is dedicated to children and is held during the Sagra del Mandorlo in Fiore festival (Agrigento) in February, with folklore performances by groups of children from various parts of the world joining together to express values of peace and solidarity.
Valle dei templi is also for the little ones: extraordinary archaeological discoveries await budding researchers. Thanks to the Park’s child educational services, they’re able to participate free of charge in various activities led by a team of archaeologists and experts in museum communication to discover the most beautiful aspects of the Valley and all its secrets, as well as participating in a real archaeological excavation and much more. Activities for families take place on the first Sunday of the month from 15:30 to 18:30 at Casa Barbadoro (under the tempio della Concordia). School activities take place during the year, by reservation, and include several projects: From Excavation to the Museum, Archaeologist in the Classroom, Collect and Preserve and Nea Akragas.
