Concierge.com's insider take:
Centered around a late-13th-century tower, renovated by Emperor Charles V to guard against invaders in 1555, the historic Baglio della Luna features a high-walled courtyard, views across Agrigento's famed Valley of the Temples, and 23 beautifully appointed rooms and suites. The three medieval tower suites are particularly romantic, with dark-wood wainscoting, sitting areas, and hardwood floors (some have beamed ceilings), but all rooms have handsome antique furnishings, including dramatic carved headboards and pretty if slightly faded fabrics. There's no swimming pool, but there is a common outdoor hot tub, and the hotel shuttles guests to a private beach just five minutes away. The intimate Dehors is one of the area's top dining spots for traditional Sicilian cuisine, like mezzelune (half-moon-shaped pasta) with swordfish and lobster tartare.
