Staying in Agrigento

We will be in arriving in Agrigento (either by train or bus) after a day in Castelvetrano; we will have one day to savour the sights of Agrigento, and then a late-afternoon train or bus to Palermo.

There seems to be no lack of reasonably-priced hotels/B&Bs in Agrigento (we're after the small traditional type), but what is interesting is that the railway line, on the map, seems to cut the town quite in half. Which side -- north or south -- is the best to stay in if we need easy walking access to the best sights, the best places to eat, and to the bus station (in case the buses turn out to be better than the trains for the Castelvetrano-Agrigento-Palermo trip)? For those who know the town, which side would you prefer to sleep in? Thanks for all advice.

Consider staying in the historic centre around via Atenea on the north side. B&B Terrazze di Montelusa is lovely, but also B&B Portatenea - tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g194662-i1381-k6…

Thanks, Vagabonda! That will surely be the area we'll be aiming for! Thanks also for your suggestions for B&Bs.. I'll check them out!

Those two B$Bs look great, but they're a little above our budget... we'll splurge if we have to, but there seem to be a lot of slightly-cheaper establishments available which might help us to keep costs down. Vagabonda, do you -- or anyone else who's stayed in Agrigento recently -- have any other recommendations for a small B&B in (or near) the historic area? Thanks!

Prego AlanJ,

Then perhaps consider Camere a Sud or La Casa di El!

Also great-looking B&Bs, and I do appreciate your efforts, Vagabonda. You obviously know the area. So here are two names I'd like to throw your way... I can get great deals on these, something like 25 euros less than the ones I've been looking at ... if you had to stay for a night at either Fiore Di Girgenti (cheapest) or at Hotel del Viale (5 euros more), which one would you choose? Thanks once again!

Also two more: Paladini di Sicilia and B&B Night and Day. These four have VERY attractive deals going right now!

Well, I "bit the bullet" here and decided to do the "big splurge": unable to decide whether to go for the best value (see the four above) or simply the best, I swallowed hard and went for the best. I wrote to Francesco at B&B Terrazze di Montelusa. Well, why not... the reviews on Tripadvisor are just amazing: every review I read gave it the maximum rating. I may arrive home broke, but I have a feeling we're going to long-remember our night in Agrigento! Thanks to everyone!
