The Sicilian coast

I took this shot in the resort town of Taormina. It was a very hot day. The temperature was over 45 °C. To walk around and make photos was VERY hard. I wanted to give up and quickly go swimming in the sea. Due to the fact that the city is located high on the mountains you have to use cable car in order to get to the beach. If you carefully look at the picture you can find it. Taormina is located high in the mountains and it offers great views of the coastline and mount Etna. In addition, there are many historical attractions in this town, such as:  the ancient Greek theatre, the ancient churches, the ruins of the temples. If you’re looking for a truly stunning and very romantic place in Sicily this wonderland is your answer.

Amazing Fact:

Taormina has an ancient theatre which is one of the most celebrated ruins in Sicily. This theatre offers best views of the Mount Etna.

Valley of the Temples

Valley of the Temples is all what left from the ancient city of Agrigento. It was a great and rich city. It was founded by the Greeks around 580 BC. Now only few ruined temples are left from Agrigento. And nothing else but memories… What seemed eternal and indestructible to the ancient people now it is almost disappeared. I think everything that seems now commonplace and eternal sooner or later will go into oblivion. And our future descendants will dig the ground and imagine how we lived – the people of the XXI century.

The photo shows one of the best preserved ancient temples – the temple of the Concordia – one of the best preserved Doric temples in the world. So the guides tell you. Although historians are not sure about this temple.

Amazing fact:

Much of ancient Agrakas still remains to be excavated! Many mysteries are still waiting to be discovered…
