... oh, it's free as part of a European Union/Unesco project for sailors coming into various ports around Sicily and Italy. So this morning we were taken to visit the magnificent Doric temples at Agrigento. These temples were built around 2500 years ago and are well worth a visit.

After walking around in the heat we enjoyed coming back to our hotel swimming pool.
Although who has ever heard of enforcing a swimming cap if you want to swim in the pool.
But we paid the 3 euro per cap and looked so cool.
Later in a nearby shop we found the same caps for 89 cents.
