Well, we are going to Cefalu and Monreale as day trips from Palermo. There are apparently many buses to Agrigento from Palermo, which we were planning to use, but have now decided to hire a car in Cefalu and drive as we'll get to see more. about 7 years ago
Yes, there are many buses from Palermo to Agrigento. But if You want to drive, that's the best option. And by the way, Palermo Agrigento is a pretty long way. A round trip will means that You will spend almost all day on the road. Maybe is better to go to Erice in 1 day, than back to Palermo. As well, You can go to Cefalù and other small town on the hills, like Castelbuono, for instance.
Of course You can go to Agrigento in 1 day, it is up to You.
My tip, is to take some more day and visit other places to before to go back to Palermo.
