  • It was really a great experience to visit such a place. Sicily was populated by Greeks and their culture is still visible from such remains. Greek Temples are unbelievable and I strongly recommend to visit also this archeological sight if you are planning your trip to Sicily. Maybe it is very hot there in summer time but nevertheless it must be visited
