and the only 5-star Boutique hotel situated in the Archaelogical Park of the Valley of the Temples. In the well kept garden is an outdoor swimming pool, surrounded by lovely old olive trees. This is just what you need after sightseeing on a hot day. The terrace restaurant is elegant, has wonderful Sicilian food , a great wine list, attentive... More

A simply wonderful experience. The hotel is elegant, romantic, and luxurious. The staff is old-world attentive, and I loved how the waiters wore white jackets in the daytime and changed to black jackets in the evening. Lovely restaurant terrace, cocktail terrace, and pool service. All with the best view in all of Agirgento of the Temple of Concordia. Exquisito.

My husband and I stayed here as part of an anniversary trip for us which included 5 nights in Sicily. The view of the Valley of the Temples was awe inspiring whether from our room, the pool, or during drinks/dinner. The restaurant was outstanding. Staff bent over backwards to ensure our stay in the area was enjoyable.

Nice property with stunning views of the Temple of Concord. Friendly staff, good but not great restaurant. We were unable to book a temple room view, but were able to enjoy the view from the pool, terrace and restaurant. Hard to beat the location if you are visiting the Valley of the Temples and the staff was very helpful and... More

This hotel is fantastic. Ideal location, very spacious rooms, nice amenities, and the grounds are lovely. Breakfast is good with the best fresh squeezed OJ. The pool is delightful. Agrigento is all about the ruins so after you tour them save time to relax back at the hotel. Dinner is excellent.

We stayed on a family trip at the Villa Athena on April 26,-27th 2015 in a suite. The hotel literally sits on the grounds of the Valley of the Temples some of the Best extant Greek Temples in existence. From our terraced balcony we could sip out coffee with a view of the 5c BC Temple of Concordia. The suite... More

We are seasoned travelers. We were two couples driving around Sicily. You don't have to be crazy to do this but it helps. Hotel Villa Athena was the one hotel that was not in a town/city. It is in a beautiful location, very calming. One thing to note is that if you don't want to eat at the hotel you... More

This is THE place to stay for a visit to Valle dei Templi. Wonderful view of the Temple of Concord from our room. Very comfortable room. Efficient and friendly service. Great food. Easy access to the temple park, about 5-10mins by car. The Museum is 300m walk from the hotel and definitely worth a visit.

I loved my stay at Villa Athena. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Agrigento. The proximity to the Valle del Templi is incredible, and the view of Temple Concord, especially at night, is extraordinary.

This is undoubtedly a good hotel, although very expensive so it should be. Our room had a lovely terrace with a spectacular view of the finest of the Greek temples, although since it cost €432 a night I think something spectacular is needed. Whether it was worth this much is hardly the point - I knew the price when I... More
