... 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 ...
What can I say - another early start to the day. This morning we went further south to the town of Noto. The old town was destroyed by an earthquake in the 1600's, so what we see now is what was rebuilt then. The style was Sicilian Baroque - very elaborate. Huge palaces, churches and theaters line the street which was built running east to west so that there was always sunshine in the street. We had one and a half hours free time here. Then we turned north ...
... special tickets were needed, but we got no where. Frustrated, we headed back to our B&B to plan the rest of our day in Agrigento. After a quick shower to cool down, we headed to nearby San Leone (the beach near Agrigento) for our mid day meal. We had read about a great restaurant, il Pescatore, that we wanted to try. True to its name the menu had a great selection of fish and seafood dishes. We had spaghetti with sardines, fennel, pine ...
... but little more. So much for getting a head start on information for tomorrow's plans. With the afternoon drawing to a close we decided to make our way to the B&B we had booked for the next two nights. By now we've learned our lesson and are leaving plenty of time to find our lodging, and it is a good thing we did. The streets of Villaggio Mose, where we are staying, are not very well marked. Fortunately it has just one ...

Along a long rocky scarp, chosen as the southern limit of the town, are still sited the great temples of ancient Akragas: the Temple of Hera (Juno) Lacinia,Concordia, Heracles (Hercules), Olympian Zeus (Jupiter), Castor and Pollux (Dioscuri) and Hephaistos (Vulcan). Further down, on the bank of the Akragas river, near a medical ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Colleverde Park Hotel Agrigento
The Coleverde Park Hotel is a wonderful hotel and a great value. The hotel is flanked by beautiful gardens and a spectacular view of the Valley Dei Templi. The four of us, all girls, stayed at this hotel in a quadruple room in early June for two nights. We had a nice stay. Our room was on the first floor and was quite large and very quiet. The beds were comfortable. We were able to leave our windows open and enjoy the nice cool night air. Upon our arrival we were offered a private, English speaking, guide to the Valley Dei Templi. We went at dusk and it was thoroughly enjoyable. The night air was cool and the temples against the sunset were beautiful. We had a car, so we were able to go into town. The hotel is fairly close to the corso where we shopped and had great lunches and dinners. We loved Agrigento and we would consider staying at the Coleverde Park Hotel again.
We had a very pleasant 3 night stay at the Colleverde. The young man who checked us in was very pleasant. He was kind enough to check on the status of my lost bag at the Claim office at the Palermo Airport and even had the patience to endure being put on hold for a very long time. Our room was quite large for European standards and the king bed was very comfortable. The view from our room was beautiful and the same one that is on the website! The bathroom large, clean and well-equipped. The breakfast was very adequate but the best part was dinner all 3 nights in the Hotel Dining Room. The food was delicious and so very fresh! I especially loved my pasta in an eggplant boat!! The wait staff were polite, efficient and very nice! The parking was very adequate. We think the Colleverde is a great value for the price and would stay there again. It is the equivalent of a very nice motel in the US.
Met at the reception desk by Mr. Pisano. He, having lived in Middle Village, Queens,NY spoke perfect English. Showed us to our room which was quite large (king size bed) . Bath was your average US size with a Tub/Shower/Toilet/Bidet.
There are three Italy 's of course: the good one, the bad one, and the indifferent one. This hotel definitely belongs to the bad one. As has been written here, you really do have to see this hotel to believe it. And it really is in a great position, the park behind it being on the edge of the Valley of Temples. But when we arrived late in the afternoon, after quite a drive through Sicily, personel was unpleasant. Upstairs everything about the small and dark rooms appeared to be austere, except for the price, that is. When we somewhat later tried to book a table in the restaurant in the park, we couldn't, since there would be a marriage going on at night, which indeed there was. There were of course no apologies. Breakfast next (sunday)morning was a disaster. It took them a lot of trouble to get a few stale cornetti together. When I complained, and said to the people behind the desk that I had been staying in better two star hotels, they responded in Italian Style, shrugging. They obviously belonged to the indifferent Italy. This hotel is an insult. Avoid it, just as you should the free parking places all around the Valley of Temples, which are run by very unpleasant looking young men, who are offering not to damage your car.....
This hotel has lovely gardens and a fantastic view but the rooms are very ordinary - it has the feel of a business hotel. Overall pretty good but don't go expecting anything too special.
See it to Believe it
Wow. Everything about this hotel was amazing. The rooms were comfortable with amazing views, make sure you book a room with a view over the temples you just can't beat it. The staff were very friendly and spoke very good English. The most amazing thing was the gardens, the hotel has an outside seating area looking over the temples and a mass of gardens which you are encouraged to explore. The hotel is situated quite a walk from the town but we were only there to see the temples and did not once need to venture into the town. The food was as superb as everything else including the rates.
Nice modern hotel in a beautiful garden setting. You can watch the sun set over the Valley of the Temples from the patio. Staff are polite but not warm. Food is good. We would return.
