Lonely Planet review
With the Tempio della Concordia lit up in the near distance and palm trees lending an exotic Arabian Nights feel, this historic five-star hotel in an aristocratic 18th-century villa offers the ultimate luxury experience. The cavernous Villa Suite, floored in antique tiles with a free-standing jacuzzi and a vast terrace overlooking the temples, might well be Sicily's coolest hotel room.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Villa Athena and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Valley of the Temples.
