When we were planning this trip, Lee looked at a picture he found in a guidebook and said, "That's the destination" - the end point before heading back to the mainland. It was Segesta, a picturesque ruin on a hill at the far side of Sicily. The ancient temple was stunning, almost isolated, and very peaceful. Although located in Italy, the ruins are, as they appear, Greek. The way the temple is situated adds dramatically to its appeal. I found a great location photo of it here.
