Hotel Villa Athena is situated in Agrigento in the heart of the Valley of the Temples, in front of the Temple of Concordia, which is only 200 metres away, in one of the most extraordinary archaeological sites in the world, named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Villa Athena is the only 5 star hotel with direct and exclusive entrance for its own guests to the Archeological Park.
Agrigento is not only the Valley of the Temples.
We advise you to visit its historic centre, full of ancient churches and picturesque corners, and for those who love the sea and unspoilt nature, there is the famous Scala dei Turchi and the Torre Salsa nature reserve where, in particular occasions, it is possible to admire sea turtles.
