It’s the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and has a florid history that can be easily told by monuments like the ones shaping the Valley of the Temples. The valley shows the ruins of 7 majestic Greek temples, while art is spread out all over the island, reaching the Byzantine mosaics we can find in the Cappella Palatina, in Palermo, the principal city of the region. Let’s not forget about one of Europe’s highest active volcanoes, Mt. Etna, right next to Catania, on the east coast side of the island.
