      Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Amico Agrigento

      To have a nice time!

      from

      We travelled on Sicily by car and some times it was hard to find the accommodations. But in Agrigento we had an very sincere welcome because the owner of that house shows us from an central point of the city by his own car the way. The house is very near (by car) to the beach and also to "Valle dei Templi". The rooms were clean and there was really no noise level. Bathroom was clean and amply. By the way it was really good to see how enthusiastic the owner is doing his work, I hope he keep that for a long time. With my experience I really can advise that accommodation.

      Wonderful Italian Hospitality

      from

      We arrived in Agrigento by car and immediately were lost. One call to Pierdomenico and he was there to lead us to Villa Amico in a few minutes. The Villa is in San Leone, a seaside town about a 10 minute drive from Agrigento and even closer to the temples. Our room had a little terrace overlooking the garden. This is a great location for visiting the temples and Agrigento. It is close enough to the beach to walk and there are fine restaurants and Gelato there. Although we had a car (free parking) there were people staying at the Villa who were using the bus to visit Agrigento and the temples. Pierdomenico also let us use his washing machine. The breakfasts were wonderful - breads, juice and Italian coffee. The passeggiata on Saturday night at the beach was lots of fun. We had an unpleasant experience eating at Trattoria Da Fofo, but the Ristorante Il Molo next to the gas station at the end of the Lungamare had a fixed price (15 euros) Mediterranean fish meal - 10 antipasto, 3 primi courses, water and wine - you get what they serve - the restaurant was full of locals and the food was delicious.

      Very pleasant stay

      from

      Even though it is not easy to find we can definitely recommend Villa Amico. The owner (Pierdomenico) is very friendly and helpful. It has a good location to visit the temples and within a 10 minute walk you can reach the sea and some very nice restaurants. Our room was very spacious (except for the shower which was rather small)

      Because of its very good price/quality ratio this is a very good deal.

      A real gem in many ways

      from

      We heartily recommend the Villa D'Amico in San Leone for anyone who is visiting Agrigento for the ruins. Out of the city itself in a lively beachfront town with its own charms, the villa, which had been the gated summer home of a family now elsewhere, provides immaculate, large comfortable rooms, with excellent bathrooms, on a quiet street off the 'lunghimare' (waterfront). The breakfast was excellent: better than we had had in more expensive places. After some trouble finding the street, we called, and the owner's charming, friendly and intelligent son Eugenio,(who speaks a fair amount of English)came for us in his car and personally led us to the Villa, which is much nicer than it seems in the picture on their website. The Villa proved a better location for getting to the Valle dei Templi than the city of Agrigento would have been. The Villa provides maps, lists of events in the area, and suggestions for restaurants in all price ranges in the area. In the evening, after an excellent dinner, we joined the 'passagiatta' with the many residents and visitors along the pretty, palm-lined waterfront, sampled excellent gelato and had a wonderful night's sleep in the quiet of the Villa. Another plus: we could park our car inside the gated Villa. Terrific place, well worth the price!

      V friendly

      from

      Fine place to stay - own bathroom with shower, bidet, etc. clean and fairly recently built? run by very friendly Pier Domenico. Catch bus number 2 from outside Agrigento train station (every 20-30 mins) all the way down to the sea (villa is about a hundred metres back up the hill). Recommended

      Ancient Roman Villa

      A travel blog entry by colebuck on Jan 06, 2015

      Upon our time in Sicily, we toured an Ancient Roman Villa that would've been used by the Romans around the time of Christ. The villa was massive in size considering the time period it was built, and it would've been used by a wealthier class of Roman citizens during its era. Intricate mosaics covered the walls and floors of the ...

      ... the stage was outstanding. The next day, we visited another amphitheater that was much bigger in size. It was made completely of stone, and its stage was twice the size of the previous one we had seen. This amphitheater was located on the side of a hill, and it too had an amazing view overlooking the ocean. The enormity of the amphitheater was breath taking in itself; easily able to seat ...

      ... their festivals surrounded the gods, their wars depended on the gods, and their societies were fixed upon the gods. When the Romans eventually conquered Greece, they adopted these ideas and their culture as well became fixated upon the gods. These temples were not only great works of art and architecture that we have today, but central social artifacts that tell of their ...

The architecture displayed by these temples was later used by the Romans in their creation of many temples and monuments during the erection of the great Roman Empire. A well-known example of this would be the ...

Agrigento was the “bread basket of the area” because people came from all over the world to Agrigento. It was essentially “new money” and contained a mixture of cultures and religions. The columns that support the temples in Agrigento can be measured. None of ...
