Agrigento is about 2.5 hours by car from either Palermo or Siracusa. From Palermo, cut southeast on the SS121, which becomes SS189 before it finally reaches Agrigento. From Siracusa, take the A18 autostrada north to Catania and the A19 west toward Enna; just past Enna, exit the A19 and follow signs south through Caltanissetta and down to Agrigento. (The “coastal route” from Siracusa—taking the SS115 all the way—may look more direct on the map but is much more time-consuming, up to 5 hours on an often very curvy two-lane road.) Parking is below the temples, near the entrances to the western section (Zeus) and eastern section (Collina dei Templi). A well-marked path leads along the ridge past the temples. A shuttle bus (3 each way) connects the parking areas with the top of the site, though the walk is not terribly strenuous.

Bus connections between Palermo and Agrigento are fairly convenient: Cuffaro (; tel. 0922/403-150) runs nine buses per day and drops you right in front of the entrance to the archaeological site; the 2-hour trip costs 9one-way, 14 round-trip. There’s also bus service from Siracusa, but it's at least 4 hours each way.

A train from Palermo takes 2 hours; there are 12 trains daily. From Siracusa, trains take 6 hours, with a change in Catania. For information, visit; tel. 89/2021. Agrigento’s rail station, Stazione Centrale, is at Piazza Marconi; from there, take a cab or local bus (lines 1, 2, or 3) to the temples, 10 minutes away.
