Beautiful and seductive, the Italian island of Sicily offers everything from Greek and Roman temples to mouthwatering street food and dramatic scenery topped by mighty Mount Etna. Explore Sicily is part of a brand-new series and is the perfect pocket companion for your trip: a full-color guide containing 14 easy-to-follow routes, taking in all of the classic sights, such as Val di Noto's sublime Baroque architecture and the frenetic capital Palermo, alongside Agrigento's fine Greek temples and, further afield, the stunningly beautiful Aoelian Islands, popular for volcano-climbing. Insight's trademark cultural coverage perfectly sets the routes in context, with introductions to Sicily's cuisine and shopping possibilities, as well as an overview of the island's complex history and the lowdown on its array of outdoor activities. Hand-picked places to eat and drink are highlighted in each tour and in the directory section, which contains a wealth of useful practical information including a language guide, as well as a range of carefully selected hotels to suit all budgets. All routes are plotted on the handy pull-out map, and the stunning photography captures the dramatic Sicilian landscape.
Insight Guides wherever possible uses local experts who provide insider know-how and share their love and knowledge of the destination.
