Comprehensive travel companion with something for all budgets, though favouring as ever the simpler things in life. Local history and culture is combined neatly with practical detail, ensuring a solid all-round guide. Includes colour sections devoted to Sicilian festivals and cuisine.
Substantial, in-depth and unrivalled coverage of the historical and cultural treasures of Sicily. The few food and drink recommendations favour traditional, well-established spots. Colour maps and photographs throughout.
After excellent introductory chapters there follows coverage of all major regions, arranged alphabetically rather than geographically. Sights, hotels, restuarants, and itineraries are all recommended and rated. Colourful and informative, perfect for a comfortable Sicilian tour.
Typically great Sunflower effort, offering 6 tours and 22 fantastic walks with enough range in terms of difficulty and length to ensure no one need be left behind. Maps, colour photographs and thougtful annotation throughout.
Lavishly-produced sightseeing companion full of colour photographs and illustrations supporting well-written entries on local history, art, architecture and so on. Less useful however when it comes to the practicalities of independent travel, which are covered rudimentarily in the back pages.
Contains 33 routes ranging from heritage trails around historic cities to longer inland and coastal treks. Something for everyone, then. Each walk is accompanied by colour mapping and photography as well as comprehensive notes.
Perhaps better viewed as a reference than a guide, this enticing, weighty tome offers fantastic extended chapters on local history and culture, followed by a region by region journey through the finest sights. Sumptious photography gives a real flavour of the island.
