San Leone is a wonderful seaside resort which offers its hospitality to many tourists and locals.
The name of San Leone descends from the Pope Leone II, who was Sicilian. Due to its proximity to the enchanted Valley of the Temples, it is one of the best beach resort near Agrigento. Every year this amazing seaside offers its hospitality to many tourists and locals, thanks to its stunning view and its miles of golden beaches; they are so extensive that you can always find a quiet spot.
Before the Arab colonisation it was an important Greek port, in fact some ruins can be seen just from walking through the city centre.
San Leone is regarded as a strategic point to visit the natural areas of dunes along Viale delle Dune and Porto Empedocles, the birthplace of Luigi Pirandello, well known for his singular and relevant masterpieces. You can enjoy a romantic sunset walking along the Lungomare Falcone and Borsellino where there are copious bars, restaurants and cafés.
