Lonely Planet review
With the Tempio della Concordia lit up in the near distance and palm trees lending an exotic Arabian Nights feel, the views from this historic five-star are magnificent. Housed in an aristocratic 18th-century villa, the hotel's interior, gleaming after a recent makeover, is a picture of white, ceramic cool.
The Villa Suite – with two cavernous rooms floored in antique tiles, a freestanding jaccuzi and a vast terrace looking straight at the temples – vies for the title of coolest hotel room in Sicily.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Villa Athena and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Agrigento.
