Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Agrigento, Italy your home away from home

This Sicilian city is more for its abundance of ancient Greek monuments more than anything. It is found to the south of Sicily and is said to have been established by the Greek way back in 580 BC. The Romans wrested it from them some centuries later and it thereafter became a part of Italy. Apart from the immense archaeological treasures found here, visitors are drawn to this locale by the stunning views seen from the height of the ancient temples. While touring this intriguing resort town, holidaymakers can make themselves at home in beautiful family villas right on the seafront or flats with amazing views.

Things to do on holiday to Agrigento, Italy

Sightseeing is what most of Agrigento’s visitors are out to do. They make the trip to the south of Sicily to see the remains of the Greek occupation centuries ago. The most prominent of these remains is undoubtedly the temple of Concordia. A lot of it still remains centuries after its construction and seeing it standing proudly on its pillars transports one back into time. But this is not the only ancient Greek temple there. There are six other temple ruins in the so-called Valley of Temples, including the one dedicated to the goddess Juna, which is also remarkably well preserved. Unfortunately, most of the other temples lost their shape and structure to earthquakes and the pinching of their stones for other construction projects.

Agrigento is also the site of many medieval buildings including churches that date back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Avid photographers will find this city picturesque from virtually every angle, especially the panoramas available from the ridge holding the ancient temples.

Places to visit on holiday to Agrigento, Italy

For more of Agrigento’s mix of the ancient and natural beauty, visitors need to make a point on including the town of Catania in their Sicilian itinerary. Like Agrigento this locale was invaded and occupied by the Greek and Arabs and has quite a dramatic past. Among the fascinating monuments in Catania is Ursino Castle which was built during the reign of Frederick II in the 12th century. It was rebuilt after an earthquake in 1600 and is today a museum.

The owners have thought of everything you could need. They have been most helpful and welcoming. The tour of the town was most useful, giving us a real sense of where to go and what to see! The villa is very secure and everything including the pool is very clean. Thank you for a lovely stay
