Agrigento Old Town – Where to stay in Agrigento for tourists

The heart of Agrigento is the Old Town area, a densely packed maze of winding narrow streets filled with history and culture. As one of the oldest and best preserved medieval towns in Sicily, there is much to explore by staying in Old Town.

There are cathedrals, abbeys, bakeries, and restaurants to see, or just pick a spot in a central square such as Pirandello Square, and soak in the activity of locals and tourists. Choosing a home base in Old Town allows you to easily explore other areas of the region, including dozens of beautiful beaches and of course, the Valley of the Temples.

Valley of the Temples – Where to stay in Agrigento for first timers

Just two kilometres from Old Town Agrigento, Valley of the Temples is the number one attraction in the Agrigento Region. The Valley can be reached from any area on this list, but you can also stay right by the Valley, and perhaps even splurge on a hotel room overlooking the temples. Choosing a hotel here means you can still reach the beaches, Old Town Agrigento and the Turkish Steps within just a few minutes drive.

Realmonte – Where to stay in Agrigento for beach lovers

Ten Kilometres west of Agrigento is the area known as Realmonte. This is where you’ll find the famous Turkish Steps or Scala dei Turchi. These blinding white limestone “steps” descend into the sea. The steps are a breathtaking sight and a popular destination for anyone visiting southern Sicily.

This area is also home to Torre Salsa Nature Preserve, which is a wonderful escape from the usual tourist crowds. Travellers who choose to stay in Realmonte will have their choice of several gorgeous beaches, along with restaurants and activities for the whole family.

Siculiana Marina – Where to stay in Agrigento on a budget

Just over 20 kilometres up the coast from Agrigento is the summer resort town of Siculiana and the seaside area known as Siculiana Marina. Since this small town is a bit off the beaten path, although still convenient to get to all the Agrigento attractions, it’s possible to find budget-friendly accommodations in this area. You can still see ruins of the medieval castle that was built here in the 14th century, or just visit one of the many beautiful beaches within reach.

Sciacca – Where to stay in Agrigento with family

About an hour up the coast from Agrigento, Sciacca is a historic fishing port on the Mediterranean Sea with a strong North African influence, thanks to the proximity to Africa. Sciacca is perhaps best known for ceramic production and sulfur springs in the mountains near town.

The beaches in Sciacca are lovely, and Sciacca has many attractions and events worth considering, including the largest Carnival parade in Sicily. Fishing is still the main industry here, and you can buy freshly caught fish right at the docks, which I think is a great reason to stay in Sciacca!
