If you've get as far as Sicily, you should definitely include a trip to the Valley of the Temples. It's a lovely site. The Temple of Concordia is one of the best-preserved Roman temples in the world; other temples are less intact but still picturesque....More

If you are into History a must see, and even if you are not it’s a stunning site with incredible views. Found the Audio guide difficult to listen too as I was too busy taking photos. Allow at least 2-3 hours and wear good walking...More
