TravelPod Member ReviewsB&B Portatenea Agrigento
On arrival, in Agrigento, it seemed the staff at the local tourist information and at Port Atenea B&B could read our minds, with all the help in maps and suggestions we could need. The room was very comfortable and provided with all mod cons. The roof terrace was a great place to relax and breakfast, with a fine (distant) view of the temples. The position was also just 2 mins walk from the station and, despite being at the busy end of the lively main street, the double glazing blocked out any noise.

Hello from Palermo, Sicily
Made famous by the Godfather movies and as we walked off the ship we were confronted by a smooth talking taxi driver who said "sir I can do you a good deal", how could I say no, I might be sleeping with the fishes if I did.
We actually did get a pretty good deal, for €90 the driver who could speak a bit of English drove us to the major attractions around town. First ...
... celebration is to fill the steps with either hundreds of candles or flowers and the photo we saw of this was stunning. We looked around this little town for a while. We then went on to see the villa Romana Del Casale. An Emperor owned this villa about 300AD. It was partly destroyed in a mudslide. One day a peasant was digging a well when he discovered part of the villa's mosaic floors. To cut a long story short eventually someone restored it to the ...
... appearance of a city. The one on the outskirts of Agrigento was no exception. Another could be seen on the other side of Agrigento from the Valle dei Templi, while the Romans had their Necropli just off the Temple ridgeline.
Basil is starting to show serious signs of use. Hopefully after the trip to Lucca he'll sprout again.
Friday was another beach day. A ...
