The beautiful province of Agrigento in Sicily offers a wide array of things to do, see, and taste. The stunning olive-tree punctuated, south-eastern corner of the island has something to enchant and captivate the imagination of every single visitor. By far the best lodgings option for independent travellers are holiday apartments in Agrigento's environs.
For high quality Agrigento accommodation, self-catering apartments are the easiest solution. Our cosy and comfortable holiday apartments in Agrigento and its surrounding region represent the most practical home-base from which to explore a truly magnificent area. Lovers of culture and archaeology will cherish a visit around the majestic Greek and Roman temples bearing witness to Agrigento's remote origins as a pearl of the Greek colonies in southern Italy many centuries ago. Foody types will be able to sample delicacies such as the almond paste cakes and cannoli.
Nature is rugged and the sun shines even in winter in this corner of Sicily. Wintertime visitors will be able to enjoy the traditional Almond Trees in Bloom festival at the start of February. A centuries old gathering of folk artists and artisans, this event offers folk song and dance shows and a multi-coloured Sicilian carts parade. Visitors can make the most of their time in the town by looking at flexible self-catering Agrigento accommodation.
Every visitor should head for the World Heritage site of the Valley of the Temples and then take a leisurely ramble through the narrow medieval lanes of Agrigento's old town on top of a picturesque hill before heading back to your Agrigento accommodation. For more places to explore head to Enna, another province of Sicily, which is a great place for archaeology buffs and nature lovers and the island of Pantelleria is full of relaxation. Whatever you do and see, a Sicilian island getaway will be truly memorable.
