Review:

Sicily, by virtue of its reputation for muggings, Mafioso ties, and austere landscapes has not been as inviting to travelers as neighboring Italian areas. Bonville feels that the "two Sicilies" he discovered and describes represent a marvelous opportunity for a "unique traveling experience." Organized under Salemo, Naples. Syracuse, Agrigento, Palermo, Taranto, and Bari, he also offers suggestions for a grand tour and a highlight tour. Visits/tours are devised primarily for those who wish to walk and absorb the rich culture and lasting beauty of these overlooked provinces.The area and street maps are rather roughly drawn. The reader will want to pull out an atlas to really understand the "two Sicilies." A good writer who emphasizes historical perspectives and gives sound advice, Bonville is informal and ardent in his enthusiasm for the sites and culture of Sicily. Chatty, romantic, and mildly erudite, this book is for the casual, earthy traveler, who enjoys sedate adventure and discovery. It will not serve business travelers or provide information on room and board. While the audience may be a little limited, it's a lovely book that will interest those who are planning to vacation in the area. -- From Independent Publisher
