Hailes Abbey (Gloucestershire, England), comments by Eleanor Hailes Abbey is a lovely site, even though there isn't a lot of it left. It is so quiet and peaceful and a good place to drop out on a sunny day. I particularly liked the small exhibition centre with [...]
Pitigliano Etruscan Pathways (Tuscany, Italy), comments by Valerie We walked a few of the Vie Cave in December; they are fascinating! There are a few grouped close together below Pitigliano along the SS74 towards Sovana, before you arrive at the Via Cava San [...]

Valley of the Temples (Sicily, Italy), comments by ItalophileNJ The "Valley" of the Temples is a fascinating place to visit. I spent a very full half-day there a couple of years ago, and enjoyed the museum as well as the temples. I've got a couple of great [...]
