Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This book is invaluable when visiting ancient monuments in Sicily because so many are in pieces with very little signage, and most of that is in Italian. The flip over pages show how wonderful these sites would have been and the visitor really can appreciate all the steps in designing and building them. In many cases, stones from the sites were used to build nearby towns, so the original sites are a jumble of leftover stones for the most part which mean nothing to the average visitor - this is why this book is vital.

I have all of these series of books and they are so well put together. To see the ideas and true forms that come together when you first look at an ancient ruin,and then see how it was portrayed so long ago is amazing!

This was a wonderful book to have during our recent trip to Sicily. While the sites are magnificent, it helped to have some idea what the buildings would have looked like when new. It is the only travel book that my husband was interested in during the trip.

Handy to have while in Sicily. Great in visualizing what a number of ruins and archaeological sites once looked like.
