This is the definitive guidebook to the enchanting island that bears the legacy of many Mediterranean cultures from centuries of trade and occupation. Written by expert Italy travel writer and National Geographic Expeditions guide Tim Jepson, this guidebook contains everything you need to make your visit to Sicily an enriching, engaged, and unforgettable experience.

Beginning with an in-depth history of the island and an informative look at Sicily today, the guidebook takes you through the popular entry port of Palermo, followed by Syracuse and the Southeast, and around the island to popular and historic destinations, including ancient Greek temples, volcanic Mount Etna, and the olive gardens of Mount Iblei.

Features highlight every activity under the Sicilian sun- sampling cannoli and gelato; swimming in volcanic pools; and running a mountain marathon. Readers are guided on a walking tour through Northern Palermo and a rail trip around Mount Etna, and taken off the beaten path to places such as Ragusa's cheese farms and the fishing island of Favignana. Gorgeous National Geographic photography and useful maps help you navigate your way around Sicily and its surrounding islands.

This handy edition is designed to be perfectly portable and quickly accessible. It offers a wealth of reliable information on activities, excursions, and local sites, along with a useful listing of hotels and restaurants. The book also includes a detailed section of practical information, including how to get around the island. However you travel around Sicily, Jepson's local knowledge and National Geographic's travel expertise will prove indispensible.
