Near Trapani in Sicily is the 5th century BC Temple at Segesta. It's in a beautiful setting on a small hill surrounded by trees and it's gold coloured stone literally glows in the sun, a perfect subject for artists and photographers. My original sketch was in pen and watercolour, but this is the second version in coloured pencil done at home.
Also near the temple are the remains of a greek ampitheatre, set on top of a hill in a stunning location. I would have loved to draw that too but I was suffering from lack of oxygen after the hike to the top!
The views were amazing, you could see for miles, well worth the steep walk up, and well worth the visit too, I'd definately like to go again.
