Sicily is teeming with ancient ruins from a number of historical periods. Here are some of the best ones to visit on your trip.

Valle dei Templi, Agrigento

The Valley of Temples is home to some of the best-preserved Greek temples found anywhere. It’s a huge archeological site, home to Roman ruins as well as Greek temples, and it will take a full day to look around.

Greek Theater, Taormina

The beautiful town of Taormina has lots to offer visitors, and the Greek Theater is one of the main attractions. It looks down over the sea and nearby Mount Etna, and it’s the second-largest ancient theater in Sicily.

Segesta

This archaeological park on the western tip of the island is a spectacular alternative to the Valle dei Templi. The main temple is incredibly well preserved, as is the ancient theater.

Piazza Armerina

This Roman palace, Villa Romana del Casale, is truly a sight to behold, and the mosaics are one of the best bits. Not only are they still in great condition, but the villa’s mosaics represent the largest collection of ancient Roman mosaics in the world.

Temples of Selinunte

Located in southern Sicily, this site is home to the ruins of an acropolis and five historic temples. Much of it was destroyed by invaders, but the remains are still impressive.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
