Agrigento is a town with an attractive medieval centre. It's served by two ports. Porto Empedocle is a naval/commercial port 4nm SW of the town, used by large cruise ships. No anchoring allowed. Inner harbour marinas welcome yachts.
3nm due south of Agrigento, Meditarraneo Yachting Club
is better for leisure visitors at the marina at San Leone. Don't miss:
Valley of the Temples which lies between Agrigento and San Leone. This series of Greek temple ruins, erected between 600 to 500BC, is a substantial tourist attraction. To escape the crowds, it's best to visit early or late in season.
