2. The Temple of Segesta, Sicily
On the northwest of the island of Sicily, around 75 km from Palermo, along the highway that connects the city to Trapani, is a spectacular ancient ruin – the Temple of Segesta. The temple, that looks something like the Parthenon from a distance, is magnificent and very well-preserved. It has no roof, but not because it collapsed over time, but because it was never completed when it was built in 430 BC. Nearby are the ruins of a spectacular amphitheater. To this day, it is used for concerts and plays.
