Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean, and lies in the south of Italy, just off the tip of the Italian "boot". It is rich in history, with Greek temples in the Doric style and many chapels with Hermetic mosaics. The archaeological site of Valle Dei Templi is one of the oldest, has well-preserved temples that were once part of one of the most important Greek cities.
