... with outlines of houses surrounding a temple. There was a wall and gateway, road with wagon wheels wore in it and many basins and tubs for a lack of a better description.. The weather was sunny one minute and looking like rain the next, but the breeze was still there. At 12.30 we headed to the beach for lunch. The restaurant was right on the beach and most of us had the usual snack food. I tried an arancini which was invented in Sicily. I think ...
... a bathing cap. You could buy one for €4.00. No thank you. So we sat on the edge and dangled our feet in. It was great - our feet loved it. Dinner was a selection of antipasti followed by pasta, then veal parma without the breadcrumbs but with eggplant,carrots and potatoes, followed by cherry ice cream. Very filling. Edie has given up waiting for me to finish and is asleep, so I think it's time to turn off the light. Two more days in Sicily. We really like it ...
SEPT 12 - PICTURES ADDED. It proved fortunate for us that the day started a bit overcast. Although humid and into the mid 80s, it would have felt much hotter if the skies were clear skies. We arrived at the Valley of the Temples just after it opened - 8:45. It was hard to believe we were at the correct location given the rutted and dusty parking lot, and ramshackle ticket office. The €1 map we got from the parking attendant showed the locations of ...
... out the menu. We stopped at a supermarket and found an inexpensive bottle of Nero D'Avola (which we had last night) and Grillo (a white wine we heard good things about - again courtesy of the NY Times). Fully stocked, we headed out along SP 115 from Marsala to Agrigento. The sky was hazy and a bit overcast, so the light was not very good for photographing the our first views of the Mediterranean Sea. This country was very ...
... salami and cheese and a Heineken beer.
We then headed home to prepare for dinner. Fiorella made pasta with anchovy sauce, some cold meats and salad and of course wine. Never a meal goes by without vino.
We were all pretty tired after the day and so I walked back to my accommodation for a good night's sleep

Historical Traveler Reviews Terrazze di Montelusa Bed and Breakfast Agrigento
Haben anhand von den guten Kritiken dieses B&B gewählt und kurzfristig bei Francesco gebucht (am selben Tag angerufen). Können wirklich nur bestätigen, was vorangehende geschrieben haben. Würden sofort und jederzeit wieder dort übernachten. Für 80Euro haben wir die Junior Suite (Zimmer 301) bekommen und es war einfach genial. Sehr schön eingerichtet und gross, sehr sauber mit allem was es braucht (eigenes Bad, Fernseher, Telefon, Minibar). Die Betten waren sehr bequem! Das Frühstück für Italienisch Verhältnisse sehr gut! Francesco, der Besitzer, einfach super nett und hilfsbereit. Schade wir waren leider nur 1 Nacht dort. Hatten aber das Glück, dass das schöne Wetter es erlaubte auf der Terrasse zu Frühstücken! Alles in allem einfach super und wir können es nur weiter empfehlen.
A "must stay" place in Agrigento
TERRAZZE DI MONTELUSA added something special to our trip around Sicily. The situation, the charm and decoration make this B&B a "must stay" place in Agrigento. It is usually said that the places you stay reflect the image of the host. In this case, one can say that TERRAZZE DI MONTELUSA is the image and hart of Francesco. A great host!

Francesco was a gem of a host. He met us at the museum so that we could follow him to the B & B. He is very helpful and aims to please. The rooftop is lovely, unfortunately it was too windy the day that we were there. Without a map it could be difficult to locate but once there it is a charming area.
Fantastic B & B!
Just to confirm what everyone else has said really - brilliant place to stay. We actually had a suite for 80 euros with a huge bedroom with twin beds, a separate lounge and small outside terrace.
Very useful information on where to eat and go - ice creams at the recommended parlour were a definite highlight!
Location is at the top end of the main street in Agrigento so near to plenty of restaurants and shops. You can catch the bus to the valley of the temples after about a 5 or 10 minute walk.
Stayed here for 2 nights after reading other favorable reviews on Trip Advisor. I did not expect the attention to detail my wife and I experienced, beginning the moment we were greeted by the proprietor, Francesco, a charming man.
Not normally given over to writing reviews online, I promised the owner Francesco that I would share my appreciation of his delightful B&B with others. Having travelled extensively in Europe on a budget I know the difficulties that can be encountered when trying to judge the quality of accomodation from photos online and from others reccommendations... so believe me when I say that this B&B is an excellent find.
Questo è veramente un Bed & Breakfast speciale. È ristrutturato benissimo, le camere sono spaziose e confortevoli, e la zona colazione è collegata a un terrazzo con viste spettacolari della Valle dei Templi. Il nostro ospite, Francesco, è stato gentile e disponibile - è anche andato in gastronomia appositamente a prendere dei cereali speciali per la colazione di mio figlio! Tutto questo e una camera matrimoniale con colazione compresa è costato solo 70 euro a notte.
Excellent Bed and Breakfast in Agrigento Old Town
We only spent one night here but wish we could have stayed longer. It is beautifully decorated and furnished and has wonderful terraces with views over the roofs of Agrigento to the temples. I would certainly recommend staying in the old town rather than Valley of the Temples itself, this will give you the opportunity to explore the town (in particular the wonderful St Maria dei Greci) and take part in the passagiata along Via Atenea in the early evening. Francesco is an excellent host and will give you good recommendations for sightseeing, restaurants and possibly the best ice cream in Sicily!
This is a truly special B&B. It is beautifully renovated, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast area adjoins a rooftop deck with spectacular views over the Greek ruins in the Valley of the Temples. Our host Francesco was gracious and helpful -- he even went grocery shopping to get a special breakfast cereal for my child! All this, and a double room with breakfast cost only 70 euros a night.
