The Hotel Athena is just about the best place to stay if you want a good view of the well preserved Temple of Concordia. It is in a pretty valley staring right at the temples and must have made a magnificent house in its day. There is not much to see in Agrigento town but making the effort to see... More

We just spent two great nights at this 5-star hotel. Welcoming and helpful staff. Free wifi in rooms. Free breakfast from a well stocked buffet. Ideal location next to the Greek temples in Agrigento. Terrific queen sized bed with the temples just outside the windows. Even had a port hole in the shower with a view of the best preserved... More

The best place to stay in Agrigento - amazing view of the temple ruins from the rooms and hotel grounds. Small quiet well maintained luxury hotel surrounded by greenery. Great breakfast spread and service. 5-10 minute walk to the ruins so no need to fuss with parking and easy to beat the crowds to have the ruins to yourself.

This is one of the more upmarket hotels in Sicily, with international standards of service, accommodation and food. We stayed two nights in a room with a view of the incredible temple complex at the hotel's back door - a peerless location, and enabling guests to walk down to the temples or up to the archaeological museum. Wifi was free... More

Unfortunately, we only had the opportunity to stay for 1 night at the luxurious Villa Athena in the Valley of the Temples. The grounds were stunning with beautiful gardens and a lovely pool. Parking was ample and easy. We had a terrific late lunch on the terrace with views of the gardens and the temples on the hill; this was... More

What a wonderful place, in a wonderful setting! Nice room (104) with a great balcony overlooking the Temple of Concordia. Not a cheap place, 5*, but you pay for what you get! Great gardens and pool area. Restaurant for dinner gets top marks to the chef and great waiters. Breakfast also very good. Nice helpful staff in reception. The chefs... More

Superb view of the temples. Yes it has his price but this is a 5 stars and it is positioned in a unique place. Good service we enjoyed the restaurant and the breakfast has just everything you need. Nice service easy to find. Shame for the pool not heated would be great to use it in winter to.

We previously enjoyed staying at the Villa Athena in 2002. My, how things have changed. Then it was a bit dated, but also quite a bargain! We stayed in the hotel's best room (Room 205 in 2002) then for about $200. That room today is $950. But, of course, it has been updated and given a face lift. This year... More

Awesome hotel located in the middle of the famous Temples Valley in Agrigento. The Temple of "Concordia" ", the most preserved one, is directly in front of the hotel and you can have breakfast or swim in the pool looking to this masterpiece of the classic architecture! The structure is a restructured ancient Villa but the rooms are pretty modern.... More
