Historical Traveler Reviews Terrazze di Montelusa Bed and Breakfast Agrigento
Absolut zum weiterempfehlen!!!!!!!
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.
Situated on the 2nd floor of a building that has been in his family for generations, recent restoration means EVERYTHING is brand new. Everywhere you look it is obvious Francesco has worked hard, and continues to do so, insuring everything is perfect for guests at his bed+breakfast. Rooms are spacious and exquisitely appointed. Great mattresses for a sound nights sleep. Beautiful terrace for breakfast, with a view over the Valley of Temples, and on to the sea.
Francesco spent 15 minutes showing me a map of Agrigento detailing places to eat, and sights to see. During this time if we encountered a language comprehension barrier, we both would dive into our dictionaries to seek the words we needed to be understood (a surprising contrast to the person we've all encountered who nod their heads, repeating "yes, yes" when actually not understanding what you are trying to say).
The high level of customer service experienced here is un-common in any city, I could go on, but more favorable reviews of Terrazze di Montelusa follow mine.
As with any property on trip advisor, contact the hotel directly for a reservation. I stayed in 6 hotels during my trip to Italy. Trying to make reservations using trip advisor partners, not once were my dates at my chosen hotels available; I would then be offered another hotel instead. My direct contact with these 6 hotels yielded me a reservation.
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.
For 45 euros (70 if there is two of you) you get a room with a large double bed, and an excellent bathroom. Although the hotel looks unassuming from the outside (and in fact is situated above another hotel that occupies the first two floors of the building - Francesco can give you the full story as to this extraordinary arrangement) inside it is clean, smart and beautifully decorated in a simple Mediterreanean style. You also get breakfast on the rooftop terreace with amazing views of Agrigento, the temples and the sea. The hotel is run by Francesco, whose family has lived in the building for over a hundred years, and he is extremely knowledgeable about his own local history, and that of Agrigento itself. All in all I really wished I could have stayed longer than the one night I had allowed myself in Agrigento and I will definitely be returning if possible in the future.
The most damning critism I have is that the water pressure in the shower is pretty weak if you try and have a shower after flushing the loo...
To those of you unconvinced who may still be unconvinced please take a look at the photos I took (which show the publicity that can be found for thisf hotel contains photos taken extremely rcently and not simply ten years ago after the hotel had just been done up, as occurs frequently on other such hotel websites).
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.
Outstanding B&B in Agrigento
Terrazze di Montelusa B&B in Agrigento Sicily
Feb. 15, 2007
We stayed at this B&B in late October during a two week trip to Rome, Florence and Sicily.The Terrazze di Montelusa was by far the BEST accomodations we had.
Everything was in the plus category, good location, easy to find, within walking distance to restaurants etc. The B&B was amazing.Francesco, the owner ,did a magnificent job in restoring the top floor of a three story building that belonged to his family. I am still showing pictures of the tile floor that he had made my artisans. The tiles were all hand painted. Each room was beautiful and the bathrooms were what one would expect in a 5 star European hotel. Just when you thought this place had it all you were invited up to the roof top terrace for a cool drink. Words cannot explain it. There you were high atop the city where you could see for miles. Breakfast was served on the terrace and you had a choice of eating in or outside.
I could go on and on but I will let you go and see for yourself and you too can experience what we did.

... Perhaps 30 mins later, the outdoor area was a good half inch deep, and I was pleased to be wearing shoes, not sandals. I still hadn't been given my bill - the poor waiters were run off their feet. It would have been easy to escape, but I'd enjoyed my second meal at the Ferro di Cavallo, so I just gave the cashier what I thought I owed. With the rain easing a little, I ran the 700 metres back to Via Divisi, pursued all the while by umbrella-wallahs. Morning brought blue skies ...
We have decided to drive down to Agrigento and visit the Valley of the Temples before we leave Aspra. It takes a couple of hours to drive the 120km to Agrigento with the route pretty much north-south and right across to the other side of the island. Despite the slow speed, there is plenty to look at with the landscape quite variable along the way. The route we took skirted around Agrigento proper and thankfully, we only had a small taste of driving in traffic there. I ...
... to extent money in their direction for some service, they might accept, but maybe not. It's all very sad because the Valley of the Temples could be magnificent, grandiose, spectacular AND comfortable all at the same time, but that's just too much work. Now, it's just a field of rubble you visit.
Outside the eastern end of the park, we encounter some touts selling beaded jewelry, marching about like Brazilian ...
... went to the UNESCO World Heritage listed Valley of the Temples. The name is a misnomer, as the temples are all located along the top of a ridge. Apparently there are 10 different temples at the site, but we only saw the 4 main ones… the Temples of Juno, Concordia, Heracles (known to us as Hercules) and Zeus. They were all in various states of disrepair, which is to be expected for 2,500 year ...

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 ...
