The owners of the B&B are very nice-- effusive. They are waiting for you when you arrive and gave us a map and gave great suggestions on what to see. Our only regret is that we had not planned two nights in Agrigento instead of one. It really deserves two nights minimum and more if you wanted to make it a base to see other towns within driving distance. The room was at least as nice as what we received at hotels that charged at least 50 percent more. NIce, quiet, had a great sleep. It is located across from the old Duomo and is at the top of an old section of the town that winds down though kasbah-like alleys and stairs -- do take some time to just wander through the neighborhood, it is very unique. They gave a wide choice for breakfast and provided local cheeses and baked goods. I would have to say that the local pastries were not really to my taste (in hindsight I would choose a plain croissant over any filling -- too nutella-like for my taste). The only warning I would give is that you probably do want to have your own car to stay here because it would be quite a hike to the bus or train station and uphill/ up stairs, or there is a bus but it could be a hassle. If you do have a car, I do have one warning for my American friends. It would be good if you have experience driving in southern Europe (which I fortunately did), because it is a little tricky to find even though I studied a map in advance and you do have a couple of 120 degree turns and stretches of two way street that can't fit two cars, so be prepared to yield and have tight squeezes. But we really did like the place. A tip on finding it: follow signs to the Duomo.
