Sometimes archaeological sites are well and truly on the tourist trail and others you need to search in the small print. Either way, we always find it a pleasure wherever we are to visit an interesting archaeological site wherever we are on holiday, even if sites suffer from over indulgent tourism. Ancient prehistoric sites always hold a fascination as the tantalising archaeology and history of places always poses more questions that it answers!
