Finding accommodation near a specific street in Agrigento

Hi, I'm planning on travelling to Agrigento early next year to meet

relatives that I've never met. As I'll be travelling on my own I'd

like to find accommodation very close to where they live (Via de

Gasperi). Could you tell me which hotels/guest houses/hostels are closest to that street (something of a decent standard but not too

expensive).

Also, is Via de Gasperi far from where the bus/train arrives in Agrigento from Palermo airport? Thanks for any advice you can give. Yolanda

Welcome to Sicily yolandag275!

You can see the distance from Agrigento Centrale (Agrigento's main train station) at Piazza Guglielmo Marconi and Via Alcide De Gasperi, perhaps a 10-minute walk, and Via Alcide De Gasperi is an even shorter walk to Piazzale Rosselli, Agrigento’s bus station.

A casa di Max is an 8-minute walk from Via Alcide De Gasperi and a 10-minute walk to the train station.

Prego Yolanda – It’s my pleasure....

Depending on how often you plan to interact with family, you might also opt for a convenient location in Agrigento’s historic centre, stay at a B&B accommodation like Terrazze di Montelusa Bed and Breakfast, and walk the 20 minutes to Via Alcide De Gasperi.

Kind regards,

Hi again Vagabonda, How nice that you've taken the time to write again.

I like your idea of staying in the historic area in a b&b and that would give me my own space yet be close enough to the family to be able to visit most days.

Thanks very much. Yolanda

Hi Yolanda,

You could easily stay in Agrigento’s historic centre and visit your family each day – You would probably better enjoy the historic centre than the more residential areas of Agrigento.

Hope you’ll report back and wishing you a lovely holiday with your family.
