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.
