For over 100 years, Touring Club of Italy has been regarded as Italy's foremost publisher of guidebooks and maps. Written by a uniquely qualified editorial board of specialists, many of whom are respected art and architecture historians, TCI's comprehensive guide to Sicily provides travelers with unparalleled information on one of Italy's most popular tourist destinations. The largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily offers an exceptional wealth of history and art, set in a landscape of remarkable intensity and variety. An overview of the island's geography and history is followed by an exploration of its cities and sights, divided into ten chapters focusing on different regions within the island. The book features 29 excursions starting from the capital, Palermo, and traveling along the coast, to outlying islands, and through the interior. Each itinerary is packed with archaeological sites, museums, examples of baroque architecture, and descriptions of numerous other cultural attractions. Meticulously drawn street plans, road maps, and plans of archaeological sites help travelers plan their routes. Throughout the book, fascinating tidbits bring to life the island's many-layered history. Also included are practical travel tips, useful addresses, and a large detachable map. This edition contains 20 percent new material, including over 200 color photos and an all-new introduction geared toward American travelers.
