The Egadi islands, just west of Trapani, form part of a marine nature reserve where dolphins and turtles swim. We picked up a buoy and spent a magical night in the lee of Montagna Grossa on the island of Favignana. Beautiful.
We then set sail, south east, towards Sciacca, around 55 miles. The wind came up in the afternoon, reaching a force 7 and although that presented no problem sailing since it wasn't on the nose, mooring wasn't at ...
... way to one of the local agents and there answer was 'follow us'..
So we finally got there in the Villa. It is a wunderful place with a relatively well preserved Roman Villa from 300 years AD, with lots of mosiacs. The site is in good shape and they did a decent job in covering the remnants of the villa in a way that gives the impression of the building as it must have been in its original state.

... quick refresh in Agrigento (agri/country & gento/people) & off to the Valley of temples with our guide Claudia, the area was first settled by the Greeks in 751BC, there were 300,000 people living here, of which 150,000 were slaves,, they constructed several temples but when the christian came in & they didn't convert the temple it was pulled down.
1. Tempio della Giunone - faced easy, built in 450-470BC then devoted in the 6th century AD
... wandering around amongst them and appreciating the beauty and wonder in creating such huge columns.
After walking around in the heat we enjoyed coming back to our hotel swimming pool.
Although who has ever heard of enforcing a swimming cap if you want to swim in the pool.

Later in a nearby shop we found the same caps for 89 cents.
