Probably one of the most exquisite archeological sites in Italy, let alone in Europe, the Valley of the Temples is actually a fantastic example of historical, greater Greece. On the ridge of the hot, dry town of Agrigrento lies the valley, with temples and statues dedicated to such gods and goddesses as Zeus, Heracles and Juno. All temples range from roughly 1,500 - 2,500 years old, each landmark is equally remarkable.
Situated at one of the most Southern points of Sicily, I swear that when I was there I could see the Tunisian coastline. If you are in Sicily then the Valley of the Temples is simply unmissable.
