Summary

Insight Regional Guide Sicily is a comprehensive, full-colour guide to this sun-baked island off the toe of Italy. Whether you're after active volcanoes, sandy beaches, fabulous food, picture-postcard fishing villages or ancient temples, this guide will point you in the right direction. Our inspirational Best of Sicily section highlights the unmissable sights and experiences, while a fact-filled Travel Tips section gives you all the practical information you need to plan your trip, and our selective listings bring you the very best hotels and restaurants.

This guide gives you an in-depth knowledge of the island's history and culture - colourful magazine-style features offer a unique insight into Sicily's joyous festivals and folk art, Baroque architecture, as well as the extraordinarily well-preserved temples and monuments of the Greek, Arab and Roman periods.

A detailed Places section, with full-colour maps cross-referenced to the text, guides you from Palermo's Arab-Norman cathedral to Stromboli's smoking volcano, and from the Valley of the Temples to the sandy beaches and colourful markets.

Discover the island's best scenic drives, with the routes marked clearly on the pull-out touring map.
